Why this course?
Competition in today’s job market is fierce. Regardless of the industry, those who can clearly and immediately illustrate their knowledge and expertise will have a distinct advantage over other potential job applicants. In the field of European Data Protection, nothing shows your qualifications better than official EU certification sought by top employers.
Secure your place in the data protection economy. Show off your knowledge and skills by adding an official certificate to your CV. Everybody on this planet is directly or indirectly connected to subjects of privacy and data protection and needs to know the foundations of data protection in our modern digital society.
There is an ever growing internationally recognized demand and need for employees of companies (data controllers) to know at least the basics of privacy and data protection and the meaning of this in daily practices. This applies for everyone, not only in his/her role as an employee, but also as a ‘citizen’ and as a private individual (parent, child). The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be explained from a practical lens of the data controller who needs to implement appropriate measures to protect personal data. The GDPR is influential for data protection practices around the globe.
Based on more than 25+ years of practical experience as a data protection professional (as business manager and lawyer), the instructor – who has been involved in many European initiatives in the field – will guide you through the main pillars of the GDPR (at introductory level 1) which will help to boost your insights, right from the start.
Unlike many other courses in the field of GDPR data protection, in this course the instructor, a seasoned professor and advisor both in academia and in practice (at private, public and semi—public EU institutes) maintains a very practical hands-on approach of ‘FAIR’ and ‘EASY’ learning.
Although privacy and data protection are relevant for our daily lives and can be used in many practical ways, in literature and in many publications by so called ‘top specialists’ these concepts are usually presented as ‘vague and complex’. In practice this leads to many misunderstandings or miscommunications. How to fix this? Part of the solution is to provide clear answers to fundamental questions. That is basically the philosophy behind this course.
This course will provide you with the foundational knowledge to think as a (employee of a) data controller who is responsible and liable for processing personal data.
This introductory course will start with a solid, clear understanding of the key concepts (such as the difference between privacy and data protection, privacy by design and default, technical and organisational measures et cetera) as used in the GDPR (and most other international data protection best practices) and what a data controller is supposed in order to comply with GDPR obligations.
You don't need to have any prior knowledge of privacy and data protection

Unique learning: FAIR and EASY
This foundation course is designed to encourage students to get a proper and sound understanding of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) based on two learning techniques.
FAIR as an acronym for ‘Fast learning by Asking Iterating Relevance’ by repeatedly asking the question of ‘why?’.
EASY as an acronym for ‘Educated Answers Suit You’ by repeated asking the question of ‘what does this mean in practice’?
Paramount technique for this is using the SMART check for any action in practice which should be (Specific, Measurable, Accepted, Realistic and Time restricted)
Fair and easy learning has been developed and applied by the instructor during his 25+ years of experience in education and training of many privacy and data protection professionals providing for:
Demystification of complex issues
Learning to be aware of distinguishing between ‘facts’ and ‘opinions’
Discussing bare essentials (by sticking to the core rationales)
Structured overviews for comprehensive understanding
The course content is based on the learning principles of the European Institute for Privacy Audit, Compliance and Certification (EIPACC) and is agnostic of disciplinary backgrounds of students (law, IT, security or any other discipline) and will discuss certain terms and definitions using ‘lay men language.’ In this way, we will get to the bare essentials of what is discussed.
