Free webinar: The Independent and Effective DPO: Legal and Policy Perspectives

Join us on Wednesday 8 July at 2pm for a webinar titled, “The Independent and Effective DPO: Legal and Policy Perspectives.” 

The webinar is jointly organised by the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) and Dublin City University (DCU), and is designed to help policymakers, regulators, and their staff better understand the legal views concerning the position of the Data Protection Officer (DPO) within an organisation. 

Specifically, the first part of the discussion will centre around the involvement and independence of a DPO from the perspective of the regulators, while the second part of the discussion will compare how this issue is perceived by DPOs and a discussion of practical examples.
