Virtual Data Protection Officer
The GDPR requires all organisations to put in place an accountability-based compliance framework for data protection and Data Protection Officers (‘DPO’s) are at the heart of this new legal framework.
A DPO is a personal data security leadership role created by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). DPOs play a fundamental role in helping to ensure a high level of data protection.
The GDPR encourages all businesses to appoint a DPO to oversee data protection strategy and implementation and to ensure compliance with GDPR requirements.
