Fast4ward 2018: Jobs in the Age of Data-GDPR

Fast4ward  Vol.2  No.1  |  2nd Quarter 2018


Data Protection Positions:
Thousands of Jobs Eyed
to Comply with New Rule

3rd-Party Service Providers,
Consulting Firms May Benefit


MAY 25. The Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) affects not just European Union citizens but the rest of the world. In the aftermath of data privacy issues post-Cambridge Analytica, a new chapter has dawned for tech companies and government agencies.

A silver lining: thousands and thousands of candidate positions. The GDPR compliance officer has become the hottest job of the season. Moreover, the GDPR allows Data Protection Officer (DPO) functions not only for an internal employee of a tech company or public agency. The new ruling allows third-party service providers, creating opportunities for consulting and legal firms to offer external DPO services.
