If you’ve never heard of a DPO before, that’s probably because it is a new position that has been mandated by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR is a new set of EU regulations that went into effect in May 2018.
GDPR does several things, but its main purpose is to govern how websites handle the privacy of their users and the private data that they collect. It also provides consumers with a variety of rights that they may assert when it comes to protecting their privacy and data on the internet.
