The Data Protection Officer (DPO)

The master of data regulation compliance

DPOs (Data Protection Officer) are responsible for supervising an organization’s data protection strategy and ensuring its regulatory compliance with legal frameworks such as the GDPR, BCBS, or IFRS.

Since May 2018, European enterprises are obligated to appoint a Data Protection Officer in order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)..
