The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires that public authorities and organisations that process data on a large scale appoint a data protection officer (DPO). The role of DPO must be “independent” within the organisation, and must be appointed on the basis of professional qualifications and qualities – in particular, “expert knowledge of data protection law and practices”.
Organisations, senior management and professionals involved in GDPR compliance can learn about the circumstances in which they’re required to appoint a DPO and the role of a DPO under the GDPR in IT Governance’s next webinar.
Presenter: Adrian Ross, GRC consultant
The key topics covered in the webinar session are:
- The specific situation in which organisations are required to appoint a DPO.
- The DPO’s relation to the controller, processor and senior management/the board.
- The responsibilities of the DPO.
- The function of data protection impact assessments under the GDPR.
