GLS Privacy Officer™

A dedicated world-class Privacy Officer

The Problem

From May 2018 companies face potential fines (equivalent to 4% of their worldwide revenue) for non-compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation.  You do not have compliant privacy infrastructure, systems or policies in place... 

Related challenges include:

  • you are unsure of what exactly the GDPR requires your company to implement
  • regulators around the world are following in the footprints of GDPR
  • an inability to manage your privacy obligations will hinder the digitisation of your business
  • you are using increasingly large sets of data to operate your business
  • the risk of inadvertent data breaches continues to grow
  • how you use personal data impacts the “trust” profile the public has of your business
  • you might have a privacy policy/function, but it hasn’t been updated in years
  • you are required to appoint a dedicated privacy officer but even if you had budget, the competition for professional compliance officers is intense

Wouldn’t it be good if someone could just come in and take care of this function for you at short notice, at a low cost and in a way that enhances your company’s digital commerce?
