The DPO Handbook

Handbook will be useful to anyone interested in the application of the Regulation, and in particular other DPOs (in the public‐ or private sector).

Part One introduces the concepts of “confidentiality”, “privacy” and “data protection” and the first data protection laws, ‐principles and international instruments.

Part Two provides an overview of all the key elements of the General Data Protection Regulation, before focussing on the additional, new core “accountability” principle and the concept and rules in the GDPR relating to the Data Protection Officer.

Part Three provides practical guidance on how DPOs in the public sector can and should fulfil their numerous tasks, with real‐life examples, relating in particular to the three focus areas: education, finance and health care, and exercises.
