Do you manage personal information of customers, clients, members of the public or employees, as a part of your job?
Since the entry of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), if you work with any personal data, you have to follow strict procedures about how you should process, share, and protect it. Not adhering to the GDPR, even unknowingly, may have serious adverse effects for you and your organisation.
In this seminar, you will understand the exact principles of this new regulation even if you have no prior knowledge about it, and know how to implement these principles in your work.
What you will learn in this course:
- The key concepts of the EU legal framework for data protection that are relevant for you
- How to protect the data you are responsible for and manage full control of it, without having to check each detail with your DPO
- What is the difference between controlling and processing data, and the responsibilities that you have to manage depending on your role
- How to report personal data breaches
- The right way to manage cross-border data transfer
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Apply all the specificities of the new regulation to your specific scope of work
- Exchange data with your colleagues and other professionals through processes that conform to the GDPR
- Send safe and secure emails both within the organisation and also to external parties
- Use the data you manage in the correct way on social platforms, both online and offline
- Design the data protection system for new or special projects that you may undertake
- Reduce the risk of infringement procedures against you and your organisation
Who is this course for:

I had a lovely time in Maastricht and the course was very interesting and fully organised. Maastricht is a beautiful place too. It is such a relief to walk in that fresh air! I look forward to attend another course
