On May 25th 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation came into force in European law. Consequently, most organisations within the public and private spheres are now legally required to appoint a Data Protection Officer, who is liable for activities such as tracking compliance, performing internal audits, and directing Data Protection tasks. The few businesses that are exempt from this provision are still likely to appoint DPOs, as they would find it expedient.
The penalties for breaching the GDPR can be and have already proven to be very severe, with fines up of to €20 million or 4% of an organisation's annual global turnover from the previous financial year. The appointment of a DPO is now crucial, as fines could become more severe the longer an organisation demonstrates noncompliance. Such serious punishments work as an incentive to appoint and resource the role of a Data Protection Officer. In order to comply with the GDPR, the DPO must fulfill specific responsibilities and possess a well-defined skill set. Therefore, our Certified Data Protection Officer training course will provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the role played by a DPO.
To begin, this course will ensure delegates attain an embedded knowledge of the principles of Data Protection. The term Data Protection will be defined, and Data Protection legislation will be acknowledged. Following this, a detailed exploration of the role of the Data Protection Officer will occur. During this section, the duty of processing personal data will be covered, and the rights of data subjects will be investigated. The challenges DPOs may encounter will also be an area of interest.
Furthermore, the DPO’s role regarding data breaches, incident response, and incident recovery is analysed. Likewise, the Data Protection Officer’s position in terms of Personal Data Audits and Data Protection Impact Assessments (or DPIAs) is thoroughly examined.
This CDPO training course will explore the following areas:
The Role of a Data Protection Officer
The Security Context
Performing a Personal Data Audit
Conducting a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA)
This certification is designed for anyone involved in a role whereby the processing of personal information is performed, or anyone looking to understand the role of a Data Protection Officer. Therefore, those within the following positions may benefit from this CDPO training course:
There are no formal prerequisites, but having some prior GDPR knowledge is recommended.
In order to acquire the CDPO certification, delegates are required to take an examination. The exam is formatted like so:
