Key aspects of the Data Protection Officer and Data Portability under the GDPR
The GDPR – entering into force in almost one year from now - provides for new rules on the protection of personal data which are mainly focusing on accountability for controllers and processors as well as introducing a risk based approach in implementing the compliance requirements.
As far as the rights of data subjects are concerned, in order to increase data subjects’ control over their own data, the GDPR provides for the right to data portability, i.e. the right for a data subject to obtain his or her data and have the data transferred to another controller. This is not an absolute right, however, and is subject to limitations and prescriptions. The webinar will also focus on the key aspects concerning the role of the DPO, when companies need to appoint one and the main features of this role. The Webinar will go through these requirements also in light of the recent guidelines issued by the Article 29 Working Party in December 2016.
