Today's Security Congress Preview webinar on Privacy (click here if you would like to view) included a polling question on the following:
What's your organization doing in regards to this? Do you have a DPO? Still considering the need for one? Not needed or relevant?
Let us know what you think.

GDPR doesn't apply to the organization I'm with, which is in the educational sector in KSA. This would translate to: -
The DPO position does not formally exist within our organization. Most organizations may not have considered a DPO position if they do not consider themselves as "large scale" data handlers of European Union citizen data. It may help if incorporated in risk assessments to include the consideration of the various data subjects, data quantity, geographic location of processing, and retention policies. After a risk assessment the need should be reassessed.
Very interesting post Tim_ISC2. I think that with the GDPR and the addition of the CCPA, the Nevada, and the New York regulations it will become increasingly important for most corporations.Data privacy and protections have evolved into a major force in the public eye, and with social media and converged social platforms influence, I see a definite rise in the number of DPO’s that will be needed in the near future.
