Data Protection Officer (DPO)

In certain circumstances the GDPR requires organisations to appoint a Data Protection Officer, who is responsible for advising an organisation and its employees about their data protection obligations, to monitor the compliance of the organisation’s practices and systems with the regulations, and to be a first point of contact for data protection related matters and inquiries. Any organisation may appoint a Data Protection Officer, and it is good practice for an organisation to appoint a reasonable person to determine the manner in which any personal data is processed, and to manage and document legal compliance, data integrity and security.
