The Data Protection Officer (DPO) role is an important GDPR innovation and a cornerstone of the GDPR’s accountability-based compliance framework. In addition to supporting an organisation’s compliance with the GDPR, DPOs will have an essential role in acting as intermediaries between relevant stakeholders (e.g. supervisory authorities, data subjects, and business units within an organisation). The DPO should have professional standing, independence, expert knowledge of data protection and, to quote the GDPR, be ‘involved properly and in a timely manner’ in all issues relating to the protection of personal data. A DPO may be a member of staff at the appropriate level with the appropriate training, an external DPO, or one shared by a group of organisations, which are all options provided for in the GDPR.

If you or someone else in your organisation would like more information on attaining a QQI  Data Protection Skills qualification let us know here.


Data protection in Ireland has been governed, to date by the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1988.  This was amended in 2003 (to include EU directives from 1995). This legislation was the Irish Government’s interpretation of the EU Directive and was implemented in a time before Facebook and Twitter existed.

In recent years with data breaches occurring on an almost weekly basis across the world.  The EU has become serious with Data Protection. In April 2016 the EU adopted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and gave the members of the EU until May 25th 2018 to prepare for enforcement. See Data Protection Commission Information.

There are a lot of changes between the DPA and GDPR, with one of the most notable being the requirement to have Data Privacy taken into consideration throughout development of any system or application which processes personal data. There are also potentially significant fines for non-compliance with the regulation so Data Protection training is a must.
