Accountability - Achieving Compliance


Course Overview:

The GDPR imposes the requirement of “accountability”. In basic terms, accountability means that in addition to actually complying with the requirements of data protection law, organisations must also demonstrate that they comply.

Demonstrating compliance consists of several elements, including preparing policies, monitoring compliance with internal policies and procedures, amending job roles and updating customer facing documentation such as websites and offline forms.

This highly practical sessions looks at the detail of what accountability requires, and provides delegates with all the knowledge and tools necessary to achieve compliance in their organisations, including:

  • what policies will need to be drafted, and the necessary content of those policies
  • how existing data protection statements and privacy notices will need to be altered and extended
  • what will need to be specified about the organisation’s security measures, and about how the organisation will respond to data breaches
  • the new role of the Data Protection Officer and/or those responsible for data protection compliance within organisations

It is recommended that delegates attending this session have a basic knowledge of current data protection legal requirements. Delegates with no existing knowledge may find it helpful to attend Data Protection Essential Knowledge Level 1 before attending this training course.
