As most privacy professionals know by now, the GDPR came into force in May of 2018. The list of data governance issues to be tackled is large, with many new requirements for anyone doing business with EU citizens. Many organizations, in fact, will have to appoint a Data Protection Officer, with specific tasks and responsibilities. Given these new demands, we’ve arranged for DPOs and privacy leaders who run some of the world’s leading privacy programs at organizations in the EU and around the globe to share their thoughts and insights with you about how to prepare for the coming obligations. This particular edition of the series will deal specifically with compliance issues related to Finland and Scandinavia, and also look at the decision to appoint an official DPO within your organization.
