Have you appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO)?

Implementation of GDPR measures will, in some cases, require the appointment of a Data Protection Officer. Organisations will have additional obligations and there will be changes that impact internal accountabilities and contracts. Where there is insufficient need for an internal DPO, some organisations may choose to employ the services of an external Data Protection Officer.
