Our experienced data protection compliance consultants are not registered to practice law in foreign jurisdictions and will not provide local jurisdiction legal advice. Instead, we work with your team to assess your organization's GDPR compliance risk and quickly deploy long-established, recognized Data Protection "best practices" and tools, in each applicable country (supplemented by local counsel guidance when necessary to identify jurisdiction-specific derogations from the GDPR).
In anticipation of the May 2018 deadline for GDPR enforcement, "regulatory" DPO appointments will be available (on an annual retainer basis), in conjunction with deployment of a strong strategic compliance program, focused on timely GDPR compliance. (Failure to achieve timely GDPR compliance may effectively void the legal protection of Privacy Shield-based transfers.) Because the termination of a DPO will need to be documented and justified based on the GDPR guidelines, careful consideration of the business expertise and privacy expertise of the initial appointee will be very important.
