How does our DPO as a Service work? 

Our CRANIUM DPO monitors your processes and ensures they remain in line with legislation.

Based on your needs and resources, we determine the number of hours or days per week needed for the DPO to achieve the objectives.

After a kick-off presentation to introduce the assigned consultant, our DPO monitors your customers’ privacy-related processes, makes sure they remain in line with updates in legislation and reports back in due time.

He/she can also rely on our privacy and security services and team. This support includes follow-up on key operational privacy activities such as maintaining records of processing activities or technical and organisational measures, assisting in DPIA’s, awareness training, etc.

Discover how we helped Port of Antwerp Bruges with DPO as a Service.

The merger between the ports of Antwerp and Zeebrugge became official at the end of April 2022. Of course, preparations for this fusion had been brewing for much longer, both operationally, organisationally and administratively. To manage everything in terms of GDPR and data protection, Europe’s second largest port called on CRANIUM for their DPO as a Service.
