About us 

DPO as a serviceData protection and cybersecurity: be proactive

In order to comply with the GDPR, some companies and organisations are required to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO). Even when appointing a DPO is not legally required, it is still recommended on a voluntary basis to ensure accountability.

A DPO needs to have expert knowledge of data protection law and practices, and be independent. An external DPO can be appointed on the basis of a service contract.

Cybersecurity-Law.be aims to deliver you data protection advice and support in matters such as: 

  • Staff training and awareness
  • Privacy and security policies
  • Processor and joint-controller agreements
  • Records of processing activities
  • Data protection impact assessments (DPIAs)
  • Dealing with data subject requests
  • Data security and breach notifications requirements


Data Protection RisksGDPR, NIS and Cybersecurity

Data protection risks affect every company and organisation.

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Network Information Security Directive (NIS) and the Cybersecurity Act, data protection and information security are regulated by a comprehensive legal framework.

Individuals are increasingly contacting data protection authorities to ask questions about the GDPR and lodge complaints about respect for their rights. 

Failure to comply with regulatory requirements can lead to prosecution, severe fines and damage to your reputation.

  • Be Accountable

    Accountability - the key principle to evidence your GDPR compliance.
    At national level, in 2019, most Data Protection Authorities report an increase in GDPR queries and complaints compared to 2017.

    67% of Europeans have heard of the GDPR. 57% know that there is a public authority in their country responsible for protecting their rights about personal data.

    Over 144.000 queries and complaints from data subjects and over 89.000 data breaches have been logged at EU level.

    Under the GDPR, accountability requires that organisations put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures and be able to demonstrate what they did and its effectiveness when requested.
