About the course

The new European data protection legislation (General Data Protection Regulation - GDRP) has been in force since 25 May 2018. It aims to make companies and public administrations genuinely responsible for protecting the personal data of individuals. The GDPR requires that organizations appoint a Data Protection Officer who will be one of the actors in data protection management. These professionals will have to acquire new skills to remain efficient. Specialization is indispensable as companies often approach the data protection officer with complex requests in their day-to-day business. We strive to prepare professionals for taking on responsibility as Data Protection Officers.

Data protection issues in everyday practice affect various fields of law, such as, but not limited to, banking and insurance law, employment law, IT law, and medical law. Hence knowing the relevant fields of law is key for Data Protection Officers. But there is more to it! Understanding the common technical processes is an important enabler for anyone who has to cope with data protection issues. The best results will be achieved by those who are taught about how to deal with the different legal as well as the relevant IT topics.
