The Fort Privacy ODPO Service

The Fort Privacy Outsourced DPO service is designed around our Privacy Maturity Model Framework. This is what sets our ODPO service apart from the competition.

The Fort Privacy Maturity Model Framework brings much-needed structure to the data protection program and provides a way to measure how effective it is.

Applying the Maturity Model helps to drive the culture of data protection in the organisation, secure buy-in from senior management, enhance the reputation of the organisation, ensure clear delegation of responsibilities and identify measurements for success.
