External data protection officer

Privacy Praxis is one of the first consulting firms to provide External Data Protection Officers – commonly known as DPO as a service.

Nowadays many companies and organizations appoint their Data Protection Officer under certain conditions. For state-owned companies this measure is compulsory. Data Managers or subcontractors can either appoint an internal DPO or appoint and external DPO.

In both cases, DPOs must be able to demonstrate that they have the skills to carry out their missions correctly. In this respect we provide external DPOs as a service with the highest standards.
