Virtual CISO/DPO

SERVICES

We are experienced CISOs, CTO’s, IT managers and DPO’s

Our virtual employee program is a perfect solution when you need the knowledge and skills but don’t have the scale to justify a full-time position.

Our staff can fill one or more of those roles, or combined roles, or cross over roles for you depending on your circumstances. Whether short or long term, project or strategic, maternity and sickness cover we have a range of flexible and bespoke options starting from 1 day per month.

All roles benefit from full access to the experience and skills of every member of the Amalfi Technology team. A suitably skilled and experienced member of the team will act as your employee, attending site as necessary and agreed. Additional resource is made available as required to attend meetings or provide specialist advice.

When the service is purchased on a day(s) per month basis we will happily move days into other months to best optimise the investment. Our aim is for all our clients to receive a tangible benefit when working with Amalfi Technology, so we allow role crossover to ensure the greatest return on your investment.

Our unique Role Crossover offering

Applies to all roles but is most popular with our one day a month, retained vDPO service. In this instance when there has been no breach or no DPIA to run then our customers can substitute data protection maintenance and update activities for another service. Currently we find this is most frequently security consultancy.  That is genuine flexibility and true ROI.

Virtual Data Protection Officer

The reality is that for some companies the role of DPO is not required by legislation, for some it is definitely not full time, others are unsure and for other companies recruiting a genuinely skilled full or part time DPO has proved somewhat problematic. Our service works in all scenarios.

Our vDPO role assumes you have already taken some steps towards GDPR adherence and from that starting point we manage all data breaches, customer/supplier responses and DPIA’s along with GDPR maintenance tasks. At any time, we will answer GDPR related questions such as lawful basis for contact without impacting your vDPO available days.

Top 5 reasons clients use our service

1
Nominated DPO has asked to be relieved of those duties to focus on their main role and no other persons have ‘volunteered’
2
Amalfi Technology provided the expertise and resources to get to the baseline point of GDPR adherence and it just made sense to retain their services
3
DPO tasks can interchange with security consultancy thus ensuring tangible benefit is always derived
4
We did not know how much work would be involved and did not want to risk a long-term contract or full employment scenario
5
Access to other areas of expertise at no extra cost

vDPO FAQ

What is the baseline or minimum starting point?

Impossible to specify an exact minimum requirement but typically we would expect a privacy notice, data protection policy, data breach policy, SAR and RTBF procedure and some form of data location exercise to have been undertaken. We are happy to help reach that baseline as part of our GDPR readiness and adherence fixed price program.

As data breaches can occur at any time what happens if the breach occurs at the end of the month. Will I be charged extra?
Do you guarantee to deal with a data breach
