Building Trust.

Some organisations are required to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) while others may be able to use existing compliance or risk functions to support their compliance. What the General Data Protection Regulation does mean is that organisations need to be informed about data privacy and other data protection laws. If a DPO is appointed, then they will be responsible for overseeing the organisation and its employees regarding their obligations as well as monitoring compliance. Activities should include: managing internal data protection activities, developing and maintaining a risk-based approach to data protection, training staff, being the first point of contact data subjects and supervisory authorities in all countries where individuals’ data is processed. Recruitment of a DPO externally (or the upskilling of existing staff to support the maintenance of GDPR compliance), is expensive, time consuming and a risk for many organisations.
