Data Protection Officer (DPO)  as a service

The challenge

In today’s fast-paced digital environment, data is everything. And so the protection of that data – yours as well as that of your customers’ – has taken on new importance. Especially in the age of the EU’s GDPR regulations, privacy is a huge risk management issue for all organizations. The primary role of the DPO is to ensure that your organisation processes the personal data of its staff, customers, providers or any other individuals (also referred to as data subjects) in compliance with the applicable data protection rules.

ISO  22301

What is ISO22301:2012

ISO 22301 is the international standard for Business Continuity Management (BCM). It provides a practical framework for setting up and managing an effective business continuity management system, that aims to safeguard an organization from a wide range of potential threats and disruptions. It specifies requirements to plan, establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain and continually improve a documented management system to protect against, reduce the likelihood of occurrence, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disruptive incidents when they arise. Obtaining ISO 22301 certification should be high on the priority list of organizations that need to demonstrate to their stakeholders that they can rapidly overcome operational disruptions to provide continued and effective service.

The requirements specified in ISO 22301:2012 are generic and intended to be applicable to all organizations, or parts thereof, regardless of type, size and nature of the organization. The extent of application of these requirements depends on the organization’s operating environment and complexity.
