Need for Data Protection Officer Checklist
Many large enterprises had previously employed full-time DPOs to oversee data protection policies and processes. Under GDPR, however, certain organisations in the public sector, or those which deal with certain kinds of data processing, must hire a DPO in order to remain compliant. For other organisations, however, it’s not mandatory. Each business, therefore, must assess first whether a DPO is required, and if not, whether it would bring benefits, should the budget allow.
