DPO services & GDPR Compliance Maintenance

HOW TO MAINTAIN GDPR COMPLIANCY AND LOCAL PRIVACY LEGISLATION COMPLIANCE?

clipeum offers a wide range of services concerning the implementation of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) or AVG (Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming) compliance within your organization, but also services in view of staying GDPR compliant.

The DPO (Data Protection Officer)/GDPR SPOC (Single Point of Contact) services make sure that you stay compliant with the European and local privacy rules at any point in time. An external DPO or GDPR SPOC is not only impartial, experienced and the safest way to be in line with the European GDPR legislation (and the by the EU member states transposed national GDPR legislations), it also gives you the comfort of knowing you will stay compliant and will always be up to date with the newest (changes in) privacy legislation.

In addition, permanent compliance with the GDPR will create (extra) trust among your personnel, your customers, your suppliers and other important stakeholders as, for example, your shareholders.
