The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) further regulates the appointment of the data protection officer (DPO), the position in the organization and the tasks and powers. In comparison with the Dutch Wbp, we can say that the GDPR further colors the function of the DPO. After this module, participants will know the most important requirements that the Dutch Wbp and GDPR set for the position of the DPO and his duties, powers and responsibilities. The participants also have insight into the main differences with the Dutch Wbp. Participants are also provided with tools for the further interpretation of their function and position.
