ECDPO – Managing a Data Breach - 19th & 20th October2021 - Online Delivery

Please note: This course will be delivered online

Data Breaches are an increasingly common occurrence in today’s technologically driven world. News of enterprise level data breaches continues to grace news headlines daily. 

GDPR imposes notification obligation on organizations, failure of which can incur sanctions as well as effective, proportionate and dissuasive fines. An organization may get over and eventually forget a data breach occurrence, those who have been affected by the breach do not.

An organisation's likelihood of a data breach occurring only increases over time particularly, where necessary technical measures are inadequate or non-existent. While not inevitable, building contingencies to mitigate the impact of a data breach should be seen as an investment safety to safeguard an organization’s data and ultimately its reputation.

This one day advanced course covers the main factors which may lead to a data breach and what process should be followed in the event of occurrence of such.

Outline of topics include;

  • What is a data breach
  • How does a breach occur?
  • Data breach defined under GDPR
  • Types of data breaches
  • Anatomy of a data breach
  • Role of Management in Data Breach Management
  • Data Breach Management process
  • The course will be completed with a case study on a real life data breach.

    Takeaway: Delegates will gain a practical understanding of the adoption of a risk based approach when managing a data breach.
