If you need a DPO, Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) can be yours, as and when you need us

Under the terms of the GDPR, you are obliged to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) if you are a public authority or body (except for courts acting in their judicial capacity), if your core activities require large scale, systematic monitoring of individuals (such as tracking online behaviour), or if your core activities include the large scale processing of special categories of data or data relating to criminal convictions and offences.

In general terms, a DPO’s tasks will include:

  • Informing you and your employees about how to comply with the GDPR and other data protection laws
  • monitoring compliance, raising awareness of data protection issues, training staff and conducting internal audits
  • Co-operating with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO – the supervisory authority)
  • being the first point of contact for data subjects – individuals whose data is processed, such as employees, prospects or customers.

Here at Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) we can provide a virtual DPO facility, ensuring that you are always fully compliant, but without the costs associated with employing a full-time specialist, or redeploying an existing employee.

We’re here to provide that necessary legal insight, as and when you need it, and it’s a flexible law advisory service that has been designed to meet your needs and obligations.

Dear Erika, thanks so much for all your help with the recent GDPR audit and subsequently taking on the role of our DPO. It’s invaluable for us to have such a flexible resource for this role, and the directors are delighted that we are able to stay compliant without adding to our payroll!
