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.

Having hard conversations strengthens relationships. Ghosting people sends the message that you don’t care.

TOP 3 Reasons Why Tough Conversations Lead To Stronger Relationships
  • Compromise: Difficult professional conversations where parties want different things can often lead to compromise after communication occurs. Demonstrating the ability to compromise is part of any great relationship.
  • Courage: Showing courage to address potential confrontation demonstrates strength in character and conviction.
  • Courtesy: Challenging professional conversations reflect courtesy for others’ time, effort and energy—even if it has been fruitless.
