EIMF, as an EXIN Accredited Training Provider and Exam Centre, is offering preparation courses and examinations to become a Privacy & Data Protection Practitioner, starting with this Foundation Certificate.
EXIN, founded in 1984 on an initiative of the Ministry of Economic Affairs in the Netherlands, is the largest provider of internationally recognised ICT certification programmes. The EIMF is very proud to have partnered up with this organisation, especially on time for the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation GDPR.
Our programme for the preparation of this exam will also prepare participants for the relevant upcoming legal framework; it is vital that organisations and professionals understand what is required and be ready for when the full implementation becomes mandatory in 2018.
This seminar helps businesses prepare for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It outlines what organizations can do on the ground to improve data governance, reduce the risk of data loss and lower compliance costs. Organizations need to understand what is required and what the potential impacts of GDPR are for them so that they can put a plan in place to address the issues because the clock is ticking to its application date.
The GDPR dramatically increases the maximum penalties for non-compliance to the greater of €20 million, or four percent of worldwide turnover. The GDPR requires greater openness and transparency; it imposes tighter limits on the use of personal data; and it gives individuals more powerful rights to enforce against organizations.
