After a check in the healthcare sector this summer, the Dutch Data Protection Authority (DDPA) is now continuing to carry out random checks on organizations to assess their level of compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This time around, the DDPA carried out a check on 45 banks and 93 insurers to determine their level of compliance with regards to the appointment and registration of the (mandatory) data protection officer (DPO).
Of the checked companies 6 banks and 9 insurers had not yet registered the DPO with the DDPA. They were granted a period of 2 weeks to comply with the registration obligation.
