The White Paper sets forth guidance and recommendations concerning the DPO's interpretation and implementation of the GDPR's provisions. The White Paper encourages a flexible and pragmatic implementation of the GDPR's DPO provisions to ensure that they work for organizations of all sizes and types, from large multinational organizations to SMEs, start-ups, NGOs and public authorities.
It identifies challenges posed by specific DPO requirements and proposes sensible interpretations and best practices.
