Description

The C-DPO Upgrade 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 two-day Certified Data Protection Officer Upgrade 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.


The benefits of the C-DPO Upgrade training course

Delivered by an experienced privacy consultant, this training covers the role of the DPO and how it fits in with other departments of the organisation. Using practical examples and exercises, delegates will get an in-depth understanding of the obligations of a DPO and how to monitor and maintain compliance with the GDPR.
