Refresher and Advanced Course for DPOs and Data Protection Experts

Refresher and Advanced Course for DPOs and Data Protection Experts will help you to refresh and update your data protection knowledge. The most pressing data protection topics will be detailed by our speakers and practitioners, who are at the forefront of data protection.

About this course

The data protection officer (DPO) is a key element of accountability as required by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The designation of a DPO is mandatory for public authorities, but also other organisations if their core activities require regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects on a large scale, or consist of processing special categories of data on a large scale.

As a DPO, you are expected to:

  • inform and advise controllers/processors and employees;
  • monitor compliance with the data protection law. and internal rules and regulations regarding data protection;
  • provide advice on data protection impact assessment;
  • cooperate with supervisory authorities.

This course is designed to help you to refresh and update your data protection knowledge. The most pressing data protection topics and most relevant guidelines, opinions and case laws in the field will be detailed by our speakers, who are practitioners at the forefront of data protection. Concrete examples, role playing, peer-to-peer discussions as well as relevant and realistic case studies will help you to refine your expertise and deepen your understanding of your duties and responsibilities. You will be able to benefit from the knowledge and the practical experience of the trainers to support the performance of your daily tasks, make it easier to deal with challenging and complex issues in a structured manner and take decisions in a pragmatic, but still compliant manner.

What will you learn

  • How to deal with controllers’ expectations and manage diverging objectives in the business environment (stakeholder management);
  • How to ensure data protection by design and by default in a fast-changing digital and legal environment;
  • How to assess data protection compliance and how it is interlinked with IT security;
  • Risk analysis and management;
  • How to assess issues related to personal data transfers;
  • What actions to take in case of personal data breaches;
  • How to implement controls.

Course methodology/highlights

We believe that practical know-how is the key to effective learning. This course therefore includes:

  • Individual preparation for the course – you are invited to bring along any information about the mission, vision, values and data protection (GDPR) framework and governance within your organisation for case study;
  • Group and individual assignments;
  • Practical exercises on DPO roles and responsibilities;
  • An interactive approach: the module’s structure will give you the opportunity to ask questions and share experiences, knowledge, needs and challenges with the trainers and other participants;

There will be time for note-taking on what you learn, so you can apply it to your own situation.

NB: Participation in this course will renew your DPO certification.

If you are interested in complementing your knowledge acquired on this course by interactive workshops where you can ‘learn by doing’ we advise you to book our complete course Data Protection: Refresher and Advanced Course for DPOs and Data Protection Experts +  Hands-on Module
