DPO Network Conference 2020

26th February 2020

Please note that the DPO Conference that was planned for March 31st has been postponed. The event will be rescheduled and we will publicise the new date as soon as it is available.


The Data Protection Commission (DPC) has established a DPC-facilitated DPO Network. The first initiative that we are rolling out is the DPO Network conference in The Helix, Dublin on 31March 2020.

The DPC-facilitated DPO Network will foster peer-to-peer engagement and knowledge sharing between Data Protections Officers (DPOs). The Conference will feature leading experts in the field of data protection, working through the application of data protection legislation in a practical and applicable way.

The DPC has engaged with different DPO Networks in the past few months and also sought feedback from DPOs working in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors on topics that they would like covered through our Network.

As a result of this engagement the Conference will focus on areas such as;

  • Risk Assessing
  • Data Breaches
  • Access and Erasure
  • Legal Basis
  • Legitimate Interest
  • Data Sharing in the Public Sector
