Data Protection Officers (DPOs) are an essential feature of the current data protection landscape. They have a multitude of tasks and responsibilities, duties and challenges. Luckily, they are not alone.

This roundtable will look into the possibilities for DPOs to get together, touching upon questions such as:

  • What are the existing networks, and what do they aim at doing?

  • What are, in practice, the advantages for DPOs of joining such networks?

  • What role can the play, for instance, in case of seemingly inappropriate dismissal of a DPO?

  • From a policy perspective, which are or should be the priorities of DPOs associations?
