A few words from our tutor on what you can expect from this course

Course Description

As of May 2018, Data Protection Impact Assessments are compulsory for a large number of organisations. Privacy Impact Assessments, which are to be carried out by the Data Protection Officer, are mandatory under the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These assessments are essentially a risk assessment of proposed processing of personal data.

This unique workshop will examine the concept of Privacy by Design, and will discuss the role of the DP officer. This will be a “learn by doing” workshop, to ensure that attendees know the best practice in practical terms. We will cover an informative walk through of the GDPR in general terms, as well as the PIA methodology in detail, and explore how to identify and undertake a project that may require a PIA. You will hear from others in your field on the key risks that arise from the PIA and will be offered guidance on best practice. You will also receive a full course pack to refer back to at any time.
