Event Description

About this course

The data protection officer (DPO) is a key element of accountability as required by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which has been applicable since 25 May 2018. The designation of a DPO is mandatory for public authorities and other organisations if their core activities require regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects on a large scale or consist of processing on a large scale of special categories of data.

As DPO, you are expected to:

  • Inform and advise controllers/processors and employees
  • Monitor compliance with the data protection law and internal rules and regulations regarding data protection
  • Provide advice on data protection impact assessment
  • Cooperate with supervisory authorities.

This course is designed to help you to refresh and update your data protection knowledge. Concrete examples, role playing, peer-to-peer discussions 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 and the practical experience of the trainers to support the performance of your daily tasks, make it easier to deal with challenging and complex issues in a structured manner and take decisions in a pragmatic, but still compliant manner.

Course methodology and 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) framework and governance within your organisation for case study;
  • Group and individual assignments;
  • Practical exercises on DPO roles and responsibilities;
  • 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;
  • Room for note taking on what you learn, so that you can apply it to your own situation.
