Who will the Course Benefit?
Staff who have been appointed as a DPO who require training to perform the role, or individuals who would like to become a DPO.
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.
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.
The course will cover:
- The GDPR’s intersection with the PECR, with freedom of information legislation, the Law Enforcement Directive and member state implementation.
- The requirements in respect of appointing a DPO, the requirements placed on the DPO and those placed on the controller or processor.
- How to achieve, monitor, maintain and demonstrate privacy compliance.
- The roles of controllers and processors, and the relationship and required contracts between them.
- The Article 12 general conditions in respect of data subjects’ rights and how to facilitate them.
- How to conduct a GDPR gap analysis.
