A privacy officer is a vital appointment in any organisation these days although it is often sensible and cost-effective to consider an outsourcing arrangement.
The job of the privacy officer ultimately is to ensure that your business operations are carried out in accordance with data protection legislation. They are tasked with building resilience into your operations and building a privacy-aware culture.

They become the point of contact internally for data protection and privacy questions ensuring and accurate and consistent approach is taken.
They will help with the appointment of data processors and initiation of data sharing arrangements.
