Data privacy has evolved from an information technology afterthought to becoming a key component in executive management's organizational plans. The privacy movement has been fueled by the introduction of several regulations that give consumers greater control over of their personal data, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). As a result, a new job role has arisen within organizations across all industries: the Privacy Officer. This individual or department is responsible for overseeing a organization’s data protection strategy and implementing proper controls to ensure compliance with various privacy regulations. 

How Can Compass IT Compliance Help?

Many organizations can't afford to employ an experienced full-time Privacy Officer, particularly smaller organizations. Other organizations may need additional support for their existing Privacy Officer, or need to fill the position temporarily while searching for a full-time employee. That is where the Virtual Privacy Officer can help! Compass IT Compliance will serve remotely as your organization's Privacy Officer, leading initiatives to achieve and maintain compliance with all applicable privacy regulations and taking a proactive approach to data privacy.
