COURSE DESCRIPTION The course will help you understand all essential aspects of GDPR. Despite it being a new data protection framework, it has its foundation on existing legislation and has a wide ranging impact which will require significant adjustments in various aspects of organizations' operations.  ​ The course will equip participants with all the necessary knowledge, skills and reference sources to help them understand, tailor and effectively use the new legal framework to their organization, ensuring their effective cooperation and communication with other project participants.  ​ During this two-day training, the participants will be informed about the main principles of data protection by design and by default creating incentives for innovative solutions to address data protection issues from the start. Following this, they will have the opportunity to cover the main action items required for their organization to become compliant. This will include discussions and surveys related to their needs and current status. With the help of workshops and exercises, at the end of the course, participants will be in a position to start implementing some of the GDPR processes which are required to be compliant. After the training, participants will be in a position to understand, translate and be able to prepare or guide most (or all?) of the required framework requirements.  ​ Strictly limited seats per course ensure a much more focused learning experience and a customised programme.  DESCRIPTION OF EACH DAY ​ Day 1: The GDPR and your Organization.
