User-generated data and the exponential industrial value of data is increasing every day. Therefore, putting together a formal set of data protection policies and procedures is essential, no matter the size of your company or the sector it operates within. This significant step in data protection compliance is crucial to ensuring your business is built to protect the information you process on employees, customers, partners and all other parties whose data may come into your possession. Lastly, it is crucial to put in place safeguards to prevent data breaches but also after experiencing a data breach.
Do you need practical knowledge on how to deal with data protection related issues? Are you in doubt about how to implement requirements set out in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or Regulation 2018/1725 (EUDPR) in your organisation? Do you have the knowledge but lack practical experience and peer-to-peer exchange in the data protection field?
This course is designed to provide practical, hands-on experience to complement your existing knowledge in the field of data protection. The hands-on module is primarily focused on enhancing the day-to-day work of DPOs and anyone working in the field of data protection. You will benefit from the trainers’ knowledge and practical experience by participating in the interactive workshops.
The hands-on module is an extraordinary opportunity to put your data protection knowledge into practice. This course employs a methodology focused on practical workshops that will be moderated by practitioners in the field. The workshops will use various simulations that will allow you to learn by doing.
This Hands-on Module consists of nine interactive workshops spread throughout two days. If you would also like to renew your DPO certification, then we advise you to book our complete course Data protection refresher and advanced course + hands-on Module
