What makes an ideal DPO?Christel Cao-Delebarre - Global Privacy Officer at Carlson Wagonlit Travel
The volume of data generated globally is accelerating at breakneck speed. 90% of the world’s data was generated in the last two years alone. Every minute over 15 million text messages are sent and 3.5 million Google searches conducted.
In this era of massive digital transformation and data as a currency, new data jobs are emerging all the time. But one role still remains ambiguous in many organizations: the Data Protection Officer (DPO). While not new, the General Data Protection Regulation has assigned a renewed importance to the role.
If data’s the new gold, and DPO its guardian, how do we know what makes a good DPO? How does a DPO successfully marry protecting fundamental individuals’ rights with being receptive to business and commercial interests? How do they help the company define their privacy trademark?
This presentation aims at examining the cornerstones of a critical role in a new global privacy landscape.
