Data Protection – If In Doubt, Put Your Hand Up & Seek Support
HSE consumer affairs regional managers have been nominated as deputy data protection officers (DDPO’s).
DDPOs are available to support you. They have data protection expertise and experience. It is important that you take their advice. If not, you are risking possible disciplinary action.
If you are in doubt about anything related to data protection, contact your region’s data protection officer.
Contact a DDPO immediately if you become aware of a data breach.
