Data Protection Officers' Perspectives on Privacy Challenges in Digital Ecosystems

  • Digital ecosystems are driving the digital transformation of business models. Meanwhile, the associated processing of personal data within these complex systems poses challenges to the protection of individual privacy. In this paper, we explore these challenges from the perspective of digital ecosystems' platform providers. To this end, we present the results of an interview study with seven data protection officers representing a total of 12 digital ecosystems in Germany. We identified current and future challenges for the implementation of data protection requirements, covering issues on legal obligations and data subject rights. Our results support stakeholders involved in the implementation of privacy protection measures in digital ecosystems, and form the foundation for future privacy-related studies tailored to the specifics of digital ecosystems.
