organisations have appointed a DPO (at company or group level)
Why a DPO ?
The appointment of a DPO is a requirement for all companies acting as public authorities or public bodies, as well as for those whose main business activity is the large-scale processing of sensitive or personal data. Other companies require a DPO if they process personal data on a regular and systematic basis on their own account. Do you know of any company that doesn’t have to process its employee payroll at least once a month ?”
Why not an external DPO ?
Should a DPO be required, there is no need for a company to extend its organisational structure or to divert some of its staff from their main duties; the GDPR allows the appointment of an external DPO, whether a natural person or a legal entity, on behalf of the company or of a group of companies.
