The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came fully into force in May 2018 requires many data controller organisations to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO). Even organisations not obliged to have a DPO may well find it highly desirable to have their compliance co-ordinated by a single individual.
