Dentsu Aegis Network has named Mark Keddie as its first global data protection officer, B&T reports. Keddie had served as chief privacy officer for British Telecom Group since 2012. The move comes less than a year before the EU General Data Protection Regulation, which mandates a DPO role, takes effect. Amplifi Global President John Murray said, "Mark is an industry leader on data protection and we are thrilled to welcome him to Dentsu Aegis Network to help us set the pace for our industry on data protection." Editor's Note: The IAPP features an ongoing series of "Ask the DPO" web conferences for insight into the burgeoning role.
