Participant Profile

Participants would need to have attended our previous “Fundamentals in the GDPR” training or equivalent.

Europe’s new General Data Protection Regulation, which will come into effect in May of 2018 and embraces a risk-based approach to data protection. The GDPR outlines that organisations that control the processing of personal data need to implement protective measures corresponding to the level of risk of their data processing activities. This workshop will cover how to conduct a GDPR Risk Assessment.
