13th March 2018 – On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced in the United Kingdom, along with all other countries in the European Union. The new legislation will mean that the presence of a Data Protection Officer will be mandatory in all companies that meet select criteria, including public authorities, or those that carry out large scale systemic monitoring of individuals. With this in mind, job search engine Joblift has analysed whether the uptake of a Data Protection Officer has been a gradual process since the GDPR announcement in April 2016, and what requirements employees are demanding in the role.
