Data protection for GDPR, it’s a tough job

Since the rolling out of GDPR, the legal negotiations for software-as-a-service contracts have only gotten tougher. GDPR has had a lot of underlying implications for startup companies that rely on data not just to provide their service but also to make their products better and to grow their companies. With GDPR and other areas of the world starting to roll out similar data protection requirements (such as California), a lot of startup companies are required to name someone as a Data Protection Officer.

What is a data protection officer?

A data protection officer is a person in a company whose job is to ensure that all data protection laws are adhered to in the process of providing the company’s service. The primary reason for having a data protection officer is to keep your company up to date with the demands of GDPR.
