What are the DPO's attributions in this situation, besides managing the Processor Personal Data questionnaires?

Answer:

1. This is more organizational related question as such things are not mentioned in the GDPR or elsewhere for that matter. Usually the DPO should train the relevant departments on how to recognize when a contract would involve processing of personal data and draft the relevant agreements alone or together with the legal department depending on the qualifications of the DPO.

2. There are lots of tasks to be performed by the DPO such as:
- providing and maintaining the necessary documentation to demonstrate compliance with the GDPR including, but not limited to policies, procedures, templates, forms and ensuring that they are kept up to date;
- informing and providing expert advice to all members of staff regarding their obligation to comply with the provisions of the GDPR and relevant local laws and regulations when processing personal data;
- monitoring compliance with the GDPR and relevant local laws and regulations, and informing the stakeholders within the Company of any changes in a timely manner.
