Data Protection Officer (DPO) Course

Enabling you to manage and operationalize data protection and privacy compliance effectively

Privacy concerns and data protection are no longer just a compliance or security issue. It has become a strategic and operational topic at boardroom level since it requires a holistic approach which entails significant changes to not only compliance and risk but also to the way organizations manage their personal data governance, operations, data and security incidents. To be successful, companies need privacy professionals who are capable to manage privacy and security in a risk-based and integrated manner.

Course design

The Data Protection Officer Course is fully hands-on, brought by seasoned experts and includes a wide range of business scenarios, as well as practical tools you can take home for immediate use on the job.
