Challenges of a DPO
Privacy legislation, like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), has progressed to the extent that Privacy Management has become one of the most important parts of your organization’s Risk Management strategy. Needless to say, the life of a Privacy Professional is everything but a piece of cake. They are often under tremendous pressure to find the right balance between mitigating risks, operating within the legal framework & staying compliant, raising awareness, slowing down/accelerating innovating projects,…
The list goes on.
While enduring this pressure, a Privacy Officer faces various practical challenges within Privacy Management:
- Lack of cooperation from other departments: Communication is key, but when every department within your company is hustling hard to meet their own goals, Privacy obligations are often an afterthought, rather than the highest priority.
- Employees with insufficient knowledge and awareness: Most employees have heard of the term data protection, yet, aren’t aware of the risks or potential benefits it can bring to the organization. Data Protection by Design (incorporating privacy-proof strategies at the beginning of a new project, instead of at the end) can offer a lot of new opportunities but developing this alternative mindset proves to be a difficult task without organization-wide awareness.
- An increasing number of and Data Breaches: Privacy awareness among Data Subjects, on the other hand, is growing more and more. People are becoming more mindful of their rights and the consequences a third party’s data breach can have. It’s an organization’s responsibility (and obligation according to the GDPR) to answer data subject requests timely and
- Undocumented Data Flows: Data is present in every organization, but it isn’t always clear where said data came from or what it will be used for. The most common answer: “We’ve had this data for as long as we know.” Mapping data flows within and beyond an organization can support a DPO in better managing data privacy compliance.
On top of these practical challenges, we would almost forget about continuous organizational and legislative changes that require immediate action. It’s fair to say that all Privacy Pros deserve the best support system they can get.
