Part-time information officer

Thinking of engaging a part-time Information Officer? While the legal obligation is to have available an information officer readily accessible by data subjects and the Regulator, many organisations are finding that part-time information officers, who are able to respond immediately to a request or complaint, is a cost effective option.  Regardless of whether the information officer is engaged part-time or full-time, the information officer must have professional experience and expertise in protecting data, commensurate with the risks associated with processing personal information.
