Data Protection Officer

A Data Protection Officer (DPO) has the role of supervisor within an organisation. The DPO supervises the correct compliance with and application of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) within an organisation. The appointment of a data protection officer is mandatory for certain organisations.

Is the appointment of a DPO mandatory for you?

An organization is obligated to appoint a Data Protection Officer if:

 It is a public organisation. For example, provinces, municipalities and healthcare and educational institutions;

  • The organisation regularly and systematically observes individuals on a large scale. Think of telecom providers and banks;
  • The organisation observes individuals regularly and systematically on a large scale. For example: hospitals, occupational health and safety services and health insurers.

Appoint an FG if this is not obligated?

Even if it is not obligated for your organisation to appoint an FG, you can still choose to do so voluntarily.  It can even be very useful and risk-avoiding to hire someone externally or to hire an employee specialized in the field of personal data protection.
