Data Protection Services (DPO)

The European General Data Protection Regulation requires from data controllers and data processors to comply with a large set of obligations, which are not always easy to address and require specific expertise.
A key role introduced by the new rules is the Data Protection Officer (“DPO”), whose appointment is sometimes mandatory, such as in the case of public authorities, or private companies whose core activities consist of processing operations which require regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects on a large scale, or processing special categories of data on a large scale. National law may even extend the scope of the latter obligation.
