What are the technical skill sets expected of a Data Protection Officer(DPO)? Personal data of individuals of certain countries should not be revealed to people outside the country. There are applications which use such personal data and whose maintenance/development can be outside the country. DPO needs to ensure that personal data is protected in all cases. Database is predominantly Oracle 8i. Inputs from experienced people in this field are most welcome. Any thoughtful inputs will also be helpful. Also please help me by sharing your knowledge and experience regarding other aspects(other than skill sets) of this field as well. Thanks in advance.
