GDPR Article 39(1)(b) states:
- The data protection officer shall have at least the following tasks:
(b) to monitor compliance with this Regulation, with other Union or Member State data protection provisions and with the policies of the controller or processor in relation to the protection of personal data, including the assignment of responsibilities, awareness-raising and training of staff involved in processing operations, and the related audits;
In my country (Poland), legal experts in their publications claim that this provision requires the DPO to conduct training. When I read this law in English, I have the impression that it is rather about the obligation to monitor training of staff. The GDPR translation into Polish is known to be full of errors, so I would like to know how it is understood in other countries and languages. So, is the DPO obliged to conduct training or not?
