FG as a Service: a successful approach for Trema

By Frank van Vonderen

Internal recruitment was not an option because there was a desire to fill this role independently and thorough privacy knowledge still needed to be built up. In addition, recruiting externally would lead to excessively high costs. HIGHBERG met Trema's needs with the 'FG as a Service' concept.

FG as a Service: een succesvolle aanpak voor Trema

Trema is a small childcare and welfare organization. In carrying out its activities, Trema deals with special personal data on a daily basis. In a general sense, Trema considers it important to deal carefully with all personal data it processes. With the arrival of the AVG, this was recognized by management, which led to a demand for an external FG. Internal recruitment was not an option because there was a desire to fill this role independently and thorough privacy knowledge still needed to be built up. In addition, recruiting externally would lead to excessively high costs. HIGHBERG met Trema's needs with the 'FG as a Service' concept.

For the past 2 years, in the role of FG, HIGHBERG has guided Trema in the implementation of the AVG, putting together the necessary products and formulating the privacy processes. Placing the implementation with Trema after each implementation step also immediately created the space to start monitoring.

Trema is satisfied. The organization's privacy maturity is now at the desired level. The implementation was gradual, with a manageable burden on her organization. It has now integrated its tasks for privacy into its operations and management receives periodic feedback and reporting on its implementation. As a result, privacy can now be discussed concretely at the board level.
