A three day course for people who want to delve into the field of security and privacy.

Three-day Course Data Protection Officer

The privacy regulations are changing. The Reporting duty for data leaks and the extension of the power to impose fines has been in operation since January 2016. Moreover, since May 2018 the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in operation. There’s only one privacy law that applies throughout the EU. This has major consequences for many organisations. Organisations must respond to this, for example by appointing (mandatory) someone who is charged with tasks in this area: the Data Protection Officer.
