The DPO Center announced it is expanding its team to Europe by recruiting another team of Data Protection Officers (DPO) based in the Netherlands that will serve the Benelux market.
thThis expansion follows an impressive track record of over 70 percent growth over the past 12 months. The DPO center has grown significantly and profitably over the past year, driven by an ever-growing client list that recently surpassed the 600 mark.
Post-Brexit, data protection law in the UK differs from that of the EU, therefore the continued expansion of the new team will allow The DPO Center to maintain its expertise in EU data protection law and significantly increase the number of EU-based clients in its portfolio increase.
That DPO Center is the leading resource center for data protection officers, providing access to experienced data protection officers providing expert data protection and data protection advice to companies in the UK, EU, Asia and North America.
The DSB Center continues to see growing demand for its services as organizations worldwide seek to ease the burden of complying with privacy laws and gain access to expert knowledge of privacy risks.
Rob Masson, CEO of the DPO Center said: “Organizations around the world are facing increased pressure and scrutiny over privacy and data protection issues in the UK and Europe. Expanding our team to the Netherlands allows us to maintain our expertise in EU data protection law and serve a broader range of EU-based clients. The experience and knowledge of our DPOs ensures that the DPO Center continues to innovate and remain the leader that we have become in our field.”
That The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is considered one of the strictest data protection laws in the world, as it imposes obligations on organizations around the world that process the personal data of EU citizens. Europe continues to take a firm stance on privacy and security at a time when organizations are increasingly deriving value from the personal data they process.
In 2022The EU plans to introduce more data protection and data security laws, including the Digital Services Act and Digital Markets Act, the Data Governance Act and the long-awaited ePrivacy Regulation, which was originally due to come into force alongside the GDPR in 2018, and will replace the ePrivacy Directive (the “Cookie Act”) 2002.
Rob Masson continues: “Privacy is one of the fastest growing areas of business in the UK and Europe and the sheer volume of new legislation being introduced around the world will ensure that the issue remains high on the agenda of UK and European company boards. It’s important for organizations to understand their exposure to data and privacy risks as they impact every part of their business, from employees to customers, partners and other stakeholders.”
