The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is considered the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. The regulation protects the data of all EU subjects regardless of the country in which they reside or the platform on which their data resides.
EU Data protection law has been transformed and GDPR is now fully enforceable in the Cyprus and the rest of the world. Under GDPR, the requirements to justify and document your personal data processing are onerous and the penalties for non-compliance will be substantial.
The EXIN General Data Protection Foundation training course provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR’s Principles, rights terminology, and compliance mechanisms. Candidates will learn how to plan a risk adverse, change driven, continuous and well thought through compliance programme with applicable accountability management of multifaceted roles like Data Protection Officer (DPO), Data Controller, and Data Processor under the GDPR.
Our course will prepare participants for the EXIN Privacy and Data Protection Foundation Certificate exam. 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.
