Data Protection Policy and Compliance for the Public Sector
Start Date: Nov 28, 2011
End Date: Nov 29, 2011
Venue: Maastricht
Description: The course will offer an explanation of the key concepts and principles of privacy, and then address the latest developments and challenges in the field of personal data use and protection. How should personal data be protected in a globalised world with increased mobility and in the wake of modern communication and information technologies? Which data is accessed and exchanged by public authorities and private companies? How well are the current rules on personal data protection working? What are the expectations of individuals and business and society as a whole? Numerous practical examples coming from both public and private sectors, combined with a high degree of interactivity, will give participants all they need to know about changes to data protection practice, as well as an insight into how to handle the myriad issues that arise in the workplace on a daily basis such as file organisation, corporate notifications and models.


A combination of lectures, structured discussions and case studies.


Participants will receive a thorough grounding in the fundamental requirements of data protection. This will give organisations key resources and information to manoeuvre within the rapidly expanding and increasingly important fields of data protection, privacy and records management.

Target group

This course is designed for anyone whose work relates to the treatment of personal data. It is aimed at, among others, data protection officers, national and sub-national officials, compliance officers, information officers, records managers, human resources officers, data protection and information lawyers, marketing managers, staff of civil liberties associations, lobbyists and researchers.
