Privacy Officer Services

Privacy is one of the most complex and dynamic legal and compliance areas in our rapidly evolving global context. The international nature of privacy and data protection laws compounds the intricacies of compliance. You don’t just need to consider the privacy laws that exist in Australia. Instead, you need to comply with the laws and regulations in every jurisdiction from which you collect, use, store, and/or transfer personal data.

Keeping up and executing best practices in technology, processes, personnel, and policies requires a hard-to-find privacy leader and a team of specialised experts that may be unaffordable as full-time hires for many organisations. And that is before you consider how in demand and difficult to find privacy skills are at the moment.

Privacy 108 can help by providing privacy officer services that give your organisation cost-effective and on-demand access to privacy specialists.


What does a Privacy Officer do?

Broadly speaking, a privacy officer is a person within an organisation who is responsible for privacy. In some organisations, there is a dedicated team of privacy officers who are responsible for overseeing privacy, sometimes reporting to a Chief Privacy Officer or other senior leader. Sometimes certain team members might be tasked with managing privacy as part of their broader role of overseeing compliance and risk.

A privacy officer is different to your risk and compliance specialists and your IT and security experts because they need to bring a unique set of skills and understanding of data handling practices to ensure your organisation is and remains compliant.  Generally, a Privacy Officer will work closely with these other teams to manage your organisation’s compliance with its privacy obligations, incident response, product design and development and third party vendor relationships (all of which come together in your Privacy Management Program (see <link> for more information).

No two days as a Privacy Officer are the same. We know this because we’ve lived it.  Our deep expertise running privacy programs for some of Australia’s most recognised brands allows us to create an unmatched Privacy Officer service for our clients.
