What each festive period brings to Data Protection Officers around the world...

ONE panicked data breach call… (on a Friday night post 9pm and 2 glasses of mulled wine, natch)

TWO DPIA reviews…. (for projects launched 6 months ago but only just brought to your attention)

THREE French employee privacy queries …(merde)

FOUR days left to respond to that ICO letter


SIX consumer queries… (thinking a right to erasure covers everything. Again. Sigh)

SEVEN end of year PowerPoint presentations to give

EIGHT (Y) pages of a new ICO guidance document to read...(won't they ever break up for Christmas hols?)

NINE urgent DPAs 

TEN New credential stuffing attacks... (since the 1st day – help – more mulled wine please!)

ELEVEN internal skype calls on the new cookie banner

TWELVE days of unused holiday entitlement…
