Rare but essential expertise

Under certain conditions, such as in public sector under GDPR or those governed by HIPAA in the US, some organisations require a Data Protection Officer by law. Even organisations who do not technically require DPOs are also seeking out suitable personnel in order to ensure internal scrutiny of their processes and the application of best practice.

But finding such resource is proving difficult. Cost-efficient and qualified external hires are hard to find, while internal appointments are often complicated by a lack of expertise or a conflict of interest.
