The cabinet

The protection of personal data is today at the heart of profound debates of society. This element of protection of the private life is today the subject of a specific regulation resulting from the Law Informatique et Libertés of January 6th, 1978.

What does DPO mean?

A Data Protection Officer (DPO) is the person responsible for ensuring the protection of personal data processed by a company. As such, he/she must ensure that all personal data under the company’s responsibility is used adequately and in accordance with applicable regulations

The role of the Data Protection Officer has been formally defined by the European Union in the context of the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR. Under this law and unlike the CIL, it is now mandatory in the following cases:

  • If your organization is a public authority or body
  • If the core activity of your organization requires regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects on a large scale
  • If the core activity of your organization requires the processing of sensitive data (such as health data, data on offences, philosophical, religious or political opinions, racial or ethnic origin) on a large scale.

The DPO must be familiar with laws and practices relating to personal data and security. He must have technical and legal expertise in the field of personal data protection. The CNIL also recommends that he/she has a good knowledge of the company’s sector of activity and internal organisation, in particular of all processing operations, information systems and technical and organisational security measures.

The responsibilities of a DPO

Any company, of any type or size, that manages personal data of EU residents must have appointed a person in their organisation to monitor compliance with the GDPR. The main tasks of a Data Protection Officer are to :

  • Develop and implement the organization’s data protection and confidentiality policy.
  • Train and advise staff on the provisions of applicable regulations.
  • Identify and monitor the use of personal data, ensuring that data protection principles are respected.
  • Handle and respond to all requests for information, correction or deletion by the data subjects in order to ensure that their data are properly protected.
