    • How to qualify as DPO?

      To understand the high demand for DPOs from companies in Europe and Brazil, GetGlobal International in partnership with EXIN, which has been active in the professional certification market for over 40 years, offers a specific professional qualification program aimed at this new professional challenge.

    • What qualifications should the DPO have?

      A DPO needs to have specialized knowledge of laws, industry standards, information security and data protection practices. However, this does not mean that he must be a lawyer or IT graduate, he is a mix of both professions. These professionals must have an understanding of the inner workings of their IT infrastructure, information management systems, and business processes that handle personal data. Excellent management and communication skills should also be a necessity for dealing with internal staff, including senior management. Getglobal International addresses all of these topics in its training.

    • How to hire a Qualified DPO?

      Hiring a qualified DPO is a challenge, especially for small and midsize companies. The right candidate should have managerial level experience in cyber security, IT and / or governance, risk and compliance, as well as extensive legal knowledge on the subject at hand. If the contractor or candidate has a high level of information security knowledge but no reasonable knowledge of data protection laws and practices, they may seek certain certifications that may fill this gap.

    • Can I be a freelancer DPO?

      Yes, due to the lack of internally qualified professionals, small and midsized organizations tend to outsource DPO work from data protection consulting firms or law firms.

    • What does a company need a DPO for?

      GDPR requires companies to appoint a DPO in certain situations, for example when the organization processes or stores large amounts of personal data belonging to European citizens. In other regulations, the hypotheses for dispensing with a DPO have not yet been defined. So, in principle, it should be considered that all companies dealing with mass or bulk personal data will need to name one.

    • What are the functions of a DPO?

      The DPO is a person who will be involved in all personal data protection matters and whose main duties involve: Informing and advising the controller or processor and their employees of their obligations under the Data Protection Regulations; Monitor compliance with theses legislations. This includes overseeing documentation, processes and records; Provide advice, upon request, regarding the Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA); Acting as a point of contact for holders' requests regarding the processing of their personal data and the exercise of their rights;

    • Are Data Protection regulations only for large companies?

      It is a mistake to think that Privacy regulations are only a concern of large companies. Small and medium-sized businesses are also affected by the law and may be at serious risk of penalties. While larger organizations will have the resources to deal with the necessary adjustments, huge fines and lawsuits, small and medium-sized businesses can simply be eliminated from the market because of the nature of the breach and / or the immediate costs to deal with it.

    • Does DPO follow instructions or act independently?

      Some basic safeguards are established so that the DPO can perform its tasks with autonomy within its organization. Those responsible are required to ensure that the DPO does not suffer interference in the performance of their duties. Regardless of whether they are caregiver employees, DPOs must be able to perform their duties and tasks independently. This means that Data Protection Officers must not be pressured and interfered with in the performance of their duties. For example, what outcome should be achieved, such as investigating a complaint or whether the supervisory authority should be consulted. Besides that, they should not be influenced to decide on a data protection law related matter, for example an interpretation of the law. The controller or processor remains responsible for compliance with data protection law and must be able to demonstrate compliance. However, the autonomy of DPOs does not mean that they have decision-making powers that go beyond their duties, retaining their primary advisory and mentoring role. The controller or processor remains responsible for compliance with data protection law and must be able to demonstrate compliance. If the controller or processor makes decisions that are incompatible with the data protections legislations and DPO's opinion, the DPO should be able to apply its clear opinion, even if it is inconsistent with those who make the decisions.

    • When do Data Protection Regulations take effect?

      Some data protection regulations are already in place, such as the GDPR that came into force in May 2018. The Brazilian GDPR (LGPD) goes into effect in August 2020 and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) will become effective in January 2020.

    • What are the means required by the Data Protection Regulations for the DPO to perform its functions?

      The Data protection regulations require the organization to support the Data Protection Officer with the resources necessary to perform its tasks and access to personal data and protection operations. In particular, the following points will be considered:
      • Active support of the DPO function by senior management (as at the board level). 
      • Enough time for DPOs to perform their functions. This is particularly important when the DPO works part time. Or when the worker performs data protection in addition to other obligations. Otherwise, conflicting priorities may result in neglecting DPO tasks. Having enough time to devote to Data Protection Officer tasks is primordial. It is good practice to set a percentage of time for the DPO function, where it is not done full time. It is also good practice to determine the time required to perform the function, the appropriate priority level for DPO tasks, and for DPO (or the organization) to develop a work plan. Other things to consider
      • Adequate support in terms of financial resources, infrastructure (facilities, facilities, equipment) and personnel, where appropriate. 
      • Official communication of DPO designation to all staff to ensure that their existence and function is known within the organization. 
      • Required access to other services. Like Human Resources, Legal, IT, Security, etc. Data Protection Officers may receive support, contributions, and essential information from these other services. 
      • Continuing education. DPOs should be given the opportunity to stay current on data protection. The goal should be to constantly increase the character of POD specialists. They should be encouraged to participate in data protection training courses and other forms of professional development, such as participation in privacy forums, workshops, etc. 
      • It may be necessary to establish a DPO team. In such cases, the internal structure of the team and the tasks and responsibilities of each of its members.  In addition, when the DPO role is performed by an outside contractor, a team of professionals working for that entity can effectively perform the tasks of a DPO under the responsibility of a designated customer contact. In general, the more complex and sensitive processing operations are, the more resources must be provided to the DPO.
