What legal obligations exist for the appointment of an internal or external data protection officer?
According to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), companies are obliged to appoint a data protection officer in certain cases. According to Article 37 GDPR, a data protection officer must be appointed if the core activity of the company consists of the extensive processing of special categories of personal data or if comprehensive monitoring of the data subjects is carried out regularly and systematically. The BDSG expands on these obligations and stipulates in Section 38 that, regardless of the core activity, companies must appoint a data protection officer if at least 20 people are constantly involved in the automated processing of personal data. These regulations ensure that companies take data protection seriously and take appropriate measures to protect personal data. If a company processes sensitive data such as in healthcare, finance, insurance, dating portals, etc., they are obliged under the regulations to appoint a data protection officer, regardless of the number of employees they employ.
