Certified Data Protection Officer (DPO) from CHF 500 per month

Having a certified privacy expert taking care of your data protection compliance is more than just a legal requirement for many companies, it’s also good for business. A good DPO builds trust with customers, employees and authorities and takes care of day-to-day compliance tasks so you can focus on your company without worry.

When do companies appoint a DPO?

For most businesses, appointing a DPO is not a legal obligation, but has become best practice for the following reasons:

Sign deals requiring a data processing agreement faster with an expert that understands the data flows of your business.

Minimise risks of costly fines, board member liability and damage to your brand’s reputation.

Boost credibility with business partners, investors and authorities by having a state-of-the-art data protection practices and a dedicated contact for all privacy-related matters.

Reduce attack vectors for competitors and disgruntled employees.

Keep up with regulatory changes and best practices.

Develop new products faster with privacy-by-design built into the development process.

What is a Data Processing Agreement?

According to Article 28 GDPR, whenever a controller uses a processor, there must be a written contract in place. A data processing agreement (DPA) is a legally binding document entered into between the controller and the processor in writing or in electronic form. It regulates the particularities of data processing – such as its scope and purpose – as well as the relationship between the controller and the processor.

What are the key terms of a DPA:
Liability

Ensure the risk allocation is well-balanced.

Penalties

Avoid excessive contractual penalties.

Protection of business secrets

Avoid excessive audit rights.

Remote work and sub-processors

Ensure rights are in line with your practices.

Data ownership

Review ownership of data (also non-personal data)

Create your standard DPA

Generate your standard DPA for free with our LEXR Bridge document engine. This is based on a balanced best practice template.

If you have more specific DPA needs, our experts can draft a specific DPA for your specific use case, whether you act as controller, processor or sub-processor. Get in touch for a quote.
