In the latest episode of the award winning Life with GDPR podcast Jonathan Armstrong chats with Tom Fox about the role of the Data Protection Officer (DPO) under GDPR. The role of the DPO has been under scrutiny recently with a new initiative to look across the EU at this area of GDPR and a new ECJ case on the legal basis of the DPO role. There’s a summary of the ECJ case Tom and Jonathan discuss here https://www.corderycompliance.com/ecr-dpo-0223/. They also talk about the requirements of GDPR including the requirement to have expert knowledge, to keep up to date and to have proper resources to enable them to do their job. Jonathan also talks about reporting lines and gives some reminders on the basics of being a DPO. They also talk about DPO training and the need for proper terms of reference for the DPO.
