Factsheet Data Protection Officer

In 2016, a lot will change in terms of privacy and data processing for entrepreneurs and companies. The new European General Data Protection Regulation will enter into force and will replace the current national data protection laws in all Member States of the European Union. The Regulation contains stricter rules on the processing of personal data. For example, all public authorities and many enterprises will be required to designate a Data Protection Officer (DPO). To prevent stricter supervision, administrative fines or court cases, it is recommended to prepare your organisation for the changes in due time.

In this fact sheet, Considerati summarizes the most important facts about the Data Protection Officer.
