Description

The Certified Data Protection Officer (C-DPO) training course outline

More extensive in scope and application than the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), the EU GDPR extends the data rights of individuals, and requires organisations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data, and adopt appropriate technical and organisational measures. UK organisations have had to comply with the Regulation since 25 May 2018, or potentially face fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater.

Under the GDPR, many organisations are obliged to appoint a data protection officer to monitor data protection in the organisation. The four-day Certified Data Protection Officer Masterclass Training Course equips participants with the knowledge and operational skills to act as a DPO in the UK and ensure that GDPR compliance is effectively designed, implemented and maintained.

Jason, Contract Consultant. Attended this course in November, 2018. I flew in from the States to take this course (all expenses paid out of my own pocket), and I was not disappointed. If you were to offer some additional masterclass-level courses (such as DSAR+Breach Management) in a contiguous, single-location, 4-5 day block, I could easily justify the cost and logistics of another international trip to attend.
