VIDEO: The role of the data protection coordinator

von Jan

Our last video article covered the topic of “The role of the data protection officer in the company”. Now, of course, the same question arises for the data protection coordinator. In this video contribution, we will illustrate to you what a data protection coordinator actually is, what his areas of responsibility are and how he is related to the data protection officer.

The role of the data protection coordinator

The role of the data protection coordinator – to many, the data protection coordinator is first of all not a term, which is not surprising, since the position of a data protection coordinator is not defined in the basic data protection regulation. Despite everything, the data protection coordinator is, in a supporting role, an important body for large companies with multiple sites and, above all, a great support for the data protection officer. However, the data protection coordinator can also act on behalf of the managing director and can be deployed flexibly for this purpose.


What other important points are to the data protection coordinator, you will learn in four bullet points addressed in our video contribution:

Who is actually the data protection coordinator in the company?

What are the differences between data protection coordinators and data protection officers?

For which responsible parties does it make sense to appoint a data protection coordinator?
