As the role data have in people’s lives gains relevance, so does the safeguard of such data. The Data Protection Reform aims at ensuring these safeguards, and in that spirit, it introduces the obligation for certain Public Entities and Companies to set up the figure of the Data Protection Officer (DPO), a professional in charge of privacy and cybersecurity issues related to data, who shall act in an independent manner.
In the effort to support every actor involved in the implementation of such measures, TAtoDPR will organize specialized Training Activities to implement the new European Privacy Regulation.
Data Protection Officers will be expected to exercise a vast amount of functions while interacting with company employees and National Privacy Authorities. This position will undoubtedly require a multi-disciplinary set of skills, which is precisely why TAtoDPR intends to devise courses to provide the necessary knowledge and build the fundamental competences for performing DPO duties.
