Data Protection: Refresher and Advanced Course for DPOs and Data Protection Experts

This course 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

This Refresher and Advanced Course for DPOs and Data Protection Experts course will provide you with substantial knowledge in the field of data protection.

We believe in constantly updating professional knowledge, particularly in the field of data protection. In a time of unprecedented challenges posed by ever-evolving technologies and different ways to use personal data, continuous learning and updating your expertise is crucial.

The data protection officer (DPO) is a key element of accountability in every organisation as required by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) And Regulation 2018/1725 (EUDPR). However, the expectations and knowledge required for the DPO are multifaceted. That requires not only mastering the GDPR or the EUDPR, but also being familiar with practical aspects of ensuring secure personal data processing and responding to data breaches.

This is why a multifaceted approach in delivering this Refresher and Advanced Course for DPOs and Data Protection Experts course is paramount. Experts and practitioners at the forefront of data protection will guide you along the legal framework of the European data protection legislation, while elaborating on some of the most pressing privacy-related issues that have emerged in the context of the pandemic.

This course is designed to help you to refresh and update your data protection knowledge. Concrete examples regarding the data protection legislative framework, analysis of the new CJEU case law, guidelines from the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) 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 of the trainers to support the performance of your daily tasks, make it easier to deal with challenging and complex issues in a structured way, and take decisions that are pragmatic, but still compliant.

Successful completion of this course will renew your DPO certification.

What you will 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 and EUDPR) 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 and discuss 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.

You will be able to:

  • facilitate the development of an effective data protection strategy and plan;
  • draft specific policies and procedures;
  • manage data breaches;
  • ensure data protection compliant transfers of personal data;
  • define the pragmatic approaches to ensure GDPR compliance within your organisation;
  • support your organisation in identifying gaps to be addressed in view of GDPR compliance;
  • advise your organisation on how to manage personal data;
  • support a data protection communication and training plan;
  • develop your professional international network in the field of data protection.

After taking this course, you can join EIPA’s dedicated community of practice together with former participants. You will also have access to the course materials for three months after the course.

  • Managers and DPOs exposed to questions related to data protection and the management of the related risks, plans and solutions;
  • Data protection experts and advisors;
  • Certified DPOs;
  • Anyone in the public or private sector who is responsible for their organisation’s compliance with the GDPR and EUDPR.
