When it comes to Data Protection, everyone is a stakeholder. 

The Data Protection World Forum will be structured around carefully curated content streams to allow delegates to focus on the issues that matter the most to them and allow them to deep dive into specialised topics.

The DPO Round Tables

GDPR stipulates that an organisation must offer staff, budget and resources to support the DPO to carry out their duties and that they must be able to perform their duties independently.

DPO’s have a crucial role to play in giving advice and help in solving data protection issues.
