A mix of internal meetings and external calls
The challenge for every DPO is to keep track of a large amount of small meetings and calls, both with internal managers, as with external suppliers. After every meeting with these non-experts, I want to be sure that everyone has the same clear understanding of the why and what that we agreed upon. I also want to ensure all participants send me their information back in time – and when I need to share documents during a call, I want to be sure they can find that info right away.
