The European DIGITAL SME Alliance in collaboration with VUB – Vrije Universiteit Brussel organise the ‘GDPR for SMEs’ training course

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become applicable on 25 May 2018 throughout the European UnionThis will be the biggest revolution in personal data protection law with worldwide effects. At the same time it will create around 28.000 vacancies for new Data ProtectionOfficers (DPOs) to ensure legal compliance and a high level of protection of personal data and privacy across companies of all sizes and sectors.

European Digital SME Alliance

Our training GDPR for SMEs is specifically tailored and targeted to people working at ‘digital’ small- and medium enterprises (SMEs) as well as other digital transformation professionals. The course will equip participants with the requisite knowledge and skills to fulfill legal requirements stemming from the GDPR and related legal instruments, guidelines and best practices. Combining theoretical knowledge and practical exercises, this two-days course will train future DPOs to, among others, ensure and monitor company’s legal compliance, manage personal data processing operations and corresponding risks, handle data subjects’ access requests and maintain communication with a data protection authority (DPA). The training will address a wide range of practical issues, from a drafting of a privacy policy to obtaining consent from data subjects and managing customer database, to conducting a data protection impact assessment (DPIA).
