Why outsource your Data Protection Officer?

Faster to appoint

There are 10x as many DPO vacancies as there are qualified individuals, making hiring processes long and expensive, leaving you exposed in the meantime.

More skills for less cost

By outsourcing the DPO role, you gain access to a wider set of skills, including technical, legal and infosecurity, all at a far lower cost than recruiting each of these individually.

The #1 reason why organizations appoint external DPOs: Conflict of interest.

Appointing a DPO internally almost always creates a conflict of interest, which Supervisory Authorities are increasingly treating as a punishable breach.


Responsible for the collection, storage and protection of data, which prevents them objectively scrutinizing their own processes.

Heads of Legal

A DPO is required to represent the data subject, while the Head of Legal is tasked with defending the organization’s interests.

Heads of Compliance

Those who are responsible for determining how data is processed cannot impartially assess its adherence to legal obligations.
