Working Party's Final Word On DPOs, Data Portability, And The One-Stop Shop

Privacy professionals and data protection officers (DPO) will need to know about changes that the EU's Article 29 Working Party has made to GDPR application guidance documents, including that a company's DPO should be located in Europe, the scope of a DPO's responsibility, and who the DPO reports to.

IAPP's publication, Privacy Tracker, also provides guidance on how data controllers should avoid adversely affecting the rights and freedoms of third parties when complying with the right to data portability, specifically how they may not hinder accessibility or provide excessive delays of data access through inappropriate fees, lack of interoperability or access to a data format.
