Course Details

  Achieving compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is not sufficient; organizations need to protect themselves by ensuring ongoing compliance through ‘business as usual’ activities. This includes keeping data protection high on the agenda for all employees and incorporating key activities and audits into governance processes. And that’s where this course can help.

Our one day GDPR compliance training will give you the confidence to plan and perform an effective audit, as well as report and take corrective action where necessary.

You’ll gain an overview on how to assess, maintain and audit your organization’s compliance with the GDPR requirements. Plus you’ll learn how to engage the whole organization in business as usual data protection practices to mitigate the risk of fines and help protect your reputation.

How will I benefit?          This course will help you:

•             Understand the role of the Data Protection Officer (DPO) or Data Protection Lead (DPL) in maintaining compliance

•             Recognize the long term GDPR requirements that need to be met as part of your day-to-day business activities

•             Identify key factors in maintaining a GDPR compliant data protection stance

•             Integrate governance activities that will assist your organization in maintaining compliance

•             Realize the role and importance of ongoing communication and training

•             Manage data protection audit activities

What will I learn?             You will learn how to:

•             Measure compliance and conduct review meetings

•             Undertake regular reviews of key activities, such as the management of Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIA), Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR), breach reporting and the upkeep of privacy information notices and core processes that support compliance

•             Maintain and improve security around personal data

•             Conduct reviews of data inventory registers, map data to ensure compliance and capture any new personal data being processed

•             Update and review policies and processes as required by the business or as legislation is amended

•             Deliver ongoing training to maintain employee awareness

•             Plan for and manage data protection-focused audits to validate regulatory compliance

Who should attend?       Anyone involved in the process of ensuring their organization maintains compliance, including:

•             Senior management

•             Data protection officer or lead

•             Internal auditors
