GDPR STIPULATIONS

The GDPR will require all organisations to put in place an accountability-based compliance framework for data protection and Data Protection Officers (‘DPO’s) will be at the heart of this new legal framework. The GDPR requires a DPO be appointed on the basis of professional qualities and, in particular, expert knowledge of data protection law and practices.

A striking feature of the GDPR is the requirement for the DPO to report directly to the “highest management level”.
