GDPR Privacy Training

(Incl. Workshop)

With the entering into force of the GDPR, an EU-wide regulation is set for the processing of personal data. Designing and implementing sufficient controls to ensure continuous compliance with this regulation however, is quite a challenge.

Moreover, the flood of interpretations, guidelines, frameworks etc., makes a complex subject even less transparent. It is essential for management to get a clear overview, and to practice how to deal with this major change in regulation, which has impact on all levels of the organization.
