External Data Protection OfficeR (DPO) Services

Pembroke Privacy acts as External DPO to a growing number of Irish and global organisations including clients from a variety of sectors such as health, financial-tech and large global-tech industries.

We can provide easy access to EU data protection compliance knowledge and best practice. With many large global companies headquartered in Dublin, Pembroke Privacy is uniquely located at the centre of data protection in the EU and we are ideally placed to offer External DPO services that can meet the requirements of both local and international organisations.

We deliver best in class External DPO services based on our significant experience and expertise acquired over many years and we ensure that we meet our clients’ needs and our statutory obligations to fulfil the tasks of the DPO as set out in Article 39 GDPR.

Art 39 GDPR sets out the task of the DPO:

  • to inform and advise the controller on obligations pursuant to this Regulation
  • to monitor compliance with this Regulation, and with the policies of the controller or processor, including the assignment of responsibilities, awareness-raising and training of staff involved in processing operations, and the related audits
  • to provide advice where requested as regards the data protection impact assessment and monitor its performance pursuant to Article 35
  • to cooperate with the supervisory authority
  • to act as the contact point for the supervisory authority on issues relating to processing, including the prior consultation referred to in Article 36, and to consult, where appropriate, with regard to any other matter

The primary role of the External DPO is to assist an organisation to process the personal data of its staff, customers, providers, and any other data subjects in compliance with the applicable data protection legislation.
