Course outline

It's crucial to recognize the profound impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the business landscape. GDPR has not only revolutionized how organizations manage customer and employee data but has also emerged as a driving force shaping future business and data strategies.

In an era of rapidly evolving technological landscapes, organizations must remain vigilant, raising awareness and adapting their processes to ensure compliance with GDPR and the ever-expanding array of privacy laws worldwide. Compliance alone is no longer enough; organizations must proactively integrate evolving privacy measures into their core strategies, fostering trust and transparency. This is why we combine GDPR Principles with wider Data Privacy and Information Security Frameworks and outline these in the final module of this training.
This GDPR course details your requirements as a board member regarding the GDPR and addresses in a comprehensive and practical way the questions you may be confronted with in the context of your professional duties. 
Corporate governance is the framework that directs and controls companies. Sound corporate governance enables a firm’s board and executives to work together to deliver a firm’s agreed strategy and meet its goals, including protecting the company from data breaches, loss of customer trust and reputation as well as the increasingly high regulatory fines under the GDPR. Demonstrating effective governance of privacy programs is a Board  responsibility. 

This course details your requirements as Board members and addresses in a comprehensive and practical way the questions you may be confronted with in the context of your professional duties.
