The figure of the DPO established by the GDPR, whether it is a subject inside or outside the company, sometimes risks finding itself in situations of conflict of interest, with all the consequences that come from this situation. It is therefore useful to know the possible problems and the solutions to avoid them.

Maria Roberta Perugini and Giancarlo Butti addressed the issue of conflict of interest in the appointment of the Data Protection Officer (DPO), a figure established by art. 37 of the GDPR.

Their contribution was published on the cyber security website of the Digital360 group: Cybersecurity360.
