There should be a Data Champion from each business area. They will help channel information on data protection within their department, and ensure tasks are completed for the Data Protection Manager. The Data Champion should undergo a full training day and will be the ‘go-to’ person responsible for overseeing data privacy matters in their business area. These people are responsible for encouraging a privacy culture in their business areas and ensure any concerns or queries, especially regarding potential data breach issues, are expediently escalated to the organisation’s Data Protection Manager.
