What are the missions of the DPO?

Even when it is not mandatory, appointing a DPO within your company allows you to :


  • Make all your staff aware of GDPR
  • Securing your employee data (HR)
  • Securing the data of your customers and prospects (marketing department)
  • Securing your computer data (IT department)

DPO in a nutshell

In many cases, the designation of an internal, external or shared DPO is mandatory or strongly recommended for organizations (principals or service providers) since May 25, 2018.

The right profile to accomplish these missions requires not only expertise but also great versatility.

What are the missions of the outsourced DPO?

Above all, the DPO has a fundamental role in advising on the company’s strategy to ensure the security, optimization, and enhancement of its client’s data assets.


The CNIL specifies the missions of the DPO through the General Regulations on Data Protection. It specifies the objectives of the Data Protection Delegate :


  • Inform and advise the data controller about the obligations in terms of personal data protection.
  • Raise awareness, inform, and advise the employees of the company where it operates on the issues of personal data protection and the GDPR
  • Checking compliance with the GDPR by carrying out an GDPR compliance audit
  • Drawing up an privacy impact assessment on the protection of company data (PIA)
  • Be available and answer questions from data subjects (internally: employees, externally: customers, patients, prospects, etc.) when processing personal data
  • Ensuring cooperation with the CNIL (GDPR’s control body) by managing the interactions between the company and the control authority
