Data Protection Officer (DPO) Consultancy Services

Kroll's data privacy team provide DPO consultancy services to help you become and stay compliant with regulatory mandates.

Contact Us

If your organization is like many others subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), appointing a Data Protection Officer (DPO) is potentially one of the greatest challenges you are facing in complying with the law.

In fact, today you may need to comply with a host of data privacy regulations that exist around the world and across industry sectors. For example, the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has long required covered entities to appoint someone who essentially must act as a privacy and security officer.

Not only do the requirements of these various roles outnumber the qualified individuals available. In many cases, the scope of duties is more than just one individual can fulfil. Kroll has the experience, expertise and resources to help.

In partnership with leading data privacy law firms, we offer DPO consultancy services that support you in becoming and staying compliant with GDPR and other data privacy laws and regulations.

Tactical and Strategic Support to Build Your DPO Program

Kroll’s team of technical and legal experts can help you quickly set up and maintain a compliant DPO program. Our data security professionals have decades of experience and expertise in data privacy and security as well as risk assessments and investigations on a global scale.

Best of all, by taking a strategic approach – one that aligns technology and operations decision-making with data privacy standards and best practices – you can improve cyber resiliency throughout your organization
