Who is a DPO?
A Data Protection Officer (DPO) should:
- Be independent, an expert in data protection, adequately resourced and report to the highest management level
- Either be an existing employee or externally appointed
- Inform and advise on the data protection obligations of an organization
Can we contract out the role of the DPO
- An organization can contract out the role of a DPO externally, based on a service contract with an individual or an organization
- An externally appointed DPO should have the same position tasks and duties as an internally appointed one.
- In some cases, organizations can appoint a single DPO between them.
Key responsibilities of a DPO include:
- Monitor and provide advice to ensure compliance with GDPR & other data protection laws, policies, awareness-raising and audits
- Provide advice regarding Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) and monitor the entire process
- Act as the contact point for the ICO and cooperate with the ICO
