The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018 concerning the handling of personally identifiable information of EU residents. The designated role of Data Protection Officer (DPO) is a critical position for all organisations to fill, whether small businesses or multinational institutions. This book details the dynamics of the DPO role including the underlying requirements, skills and activities involved in starting up or developing privacy programmes and in building a culture that supports privacy, security and integrity of data.
Sofia Edvardsen is CEO & Owner of law firm, Sharp Cookie Advisors. She has extensive experience in data protection, intellectual property, software licensing, electronic commerce and commercial law in relation to technology transactions, outsourcing and startups. Filip Johnssén is Senior Legal Counsel for privacy at Klarna. He has been working exclusively with privacy and data protection for 10 years.
''Strikes a good balance between the regulation and the day to day role of the DPO – gives good practical guidance and references, and I think would make an ideal guide for those new into the DPO world. For those already undertaking the role, it helps to refocus, and provides some valuable information on key processes and procedures.''
