Coffee with Privacy Pros: DPO vs. CPO. Lawyer vs. Technician. The Dualities of Privacy.

Looking for guidance on how to break into the privacy space? As part of TRU's continued commitment to representing privacy professionals (and helping people become privacy professionals), CEO Jared Coseglia will be interviewing Chief Privacy Officers, legal counsel, and partners in privacy practice groups as part of an ongoing series, Coffee with Privacy Leaders, published by CPO Magazine. Read the third of several interviews, "Coffee with Privacy Pros: DPO vs. CPO. Lawyer vs. Technician. The Dualities of Privacy." featuring Robert Gratchner, the global DPO for Siemens!

Like many privacy professionals, Robert Gratchner got his start in the industry accidentally but not surreptitiously. His bachelor’s in economics, master’s in finance and work experience in corporate audits at large technology companies – namely Intel where he began his focus on privacy – made him visible and ripe for executives to pluck from the masses to assist with moving the organization into Europe as well as applying traditional financial audit tactics and techniques to privacy-specific audits and company agendas. Almost 20 years later, Gratchner is now the global DPO (data protection officer) for Siemens, the largest industrial manufacturing company in Europe, with over 83 million euros in revenue annually.

For every day out of the office, anticipate it taking three days to feel caught up.

TOP 3 Ways To Catch Up After Being Out Of Office
  • Keep your out of office message on one day longer to buy time to catch up.
  • Work from the top of your inbox and move down. Respond to the latest information in a chain as people often resolve issues during your absence.
  • Do a quick categorization of priorities and stick to them. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

The U.S.’s state-by-state privacy regulation approach is creating jobs—and inefficiency.

TOP 3 Unforeseen Effects Of Increased State (Rather Than Federal) Privacy Regulation On The Privacy Job Market
  • Outside counsel will hyperextend their Data Privacy practice hiring to service the needs of corporations who cannot or do not want to keep up with privacy regulations in-house.
  • Contract staffing for privacy lawyers will balloon until federal legislation levels the playing field.
  • If and when Federal legislation does pass, the need for privacy pros may decrease due to the growing inflation of demand corporations face to stay compliant in all fifty states as well as abroad.
