To ensure compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union a Data Protection Impact Assessment is recommended which identifies and assesses risks for individuals.
A data protection officer (DPO) is a security role required by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Data protection officers are responsible for overseeing an organisation’s data protection strategy and its implementation to ensure compliance with GDPR requirements.
