The role of data protection officers

20 Mar Webinar 11:00AM - 12:00PM


Soon, the appointment of a DPO will be mandatory in certain circumstances. It will depend on factors such as the core activity of the processor, the systematic monitoring of data subjects on a large scale, and the categories of data processed. We will explain the need and grounds for a DPO, and the actual requirements of the officer.
