Our experienced gdpr compliance consultants are not registered to practice law in foreign jurisdictions and will not provide clients with local jurisdiction legal advice. Instead, we work within your team to assess your organization's GDPR compliance risk and deploy established, recognized, Data Protection "best practices" and compliance tools, in each applicable eu jurisdiction (supplemented by local counsel guidance when necessary to identify jurisdiction-specific gdpr considerations).
DPO appointments will be available (on a two-year (min.) contract) at a flat fee of $35,000 annually ( paid quarterly in advance for each calendar quarter our DPO consultant is officially disclosed to a regulator and/or identified on your website as required by GDPR).
SEPARATELY, DPO services may be performed on an hourly basis (or in excess of 40 hours per quarter on an annual contract) billed at a rate of $250.00 per hour.
Because the termination of a DPO will need to be documented and justified based on the GDPR guidelines, careful consideration of the business experience and privacy expertise of the initial DPO appointee will be very important.
