GDPR and What to look for in your Data Protection Officer (DPO)
All public sector organisations (with the exception of the courts) that process the personal information of data subjects must appoint a DPO to oversee processing activities prior to The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on 25th May 2018.
According to recent research by the ICO, 75% of councils have appointed a Data Protection Officer, leaving 25% that still have not, but there is plenty of time.
Even if your organisation is not required to formally appoint a DPO, that doesn’t mean you won’t be affected by the new regulations. You will still be required to comply, and a suitably qualified individual will need to be in place to ensure that your organisation is meeting the demands of the GDPR.
