The GDPR is important for all EU and non-EU companies that are offering goods or services to identified or identifiable EU natural persons ("data subjects"), organizations processing personal data of EU data subjects, or organizations that monitor the online behaviour of EU data subjects. Non-EU companies that have no local presence in the EU are also in the scope of the regulation.
The program is beneficial to:
- Managers and employees working at the strategic, tactical, and operational levels of risk management, compliance, information security and IT management.
- Data protection and privacy managers, employees, auditors, and consultants.
- Marketing managers and persons involved in profiling.
- Controllers and processors.
- Vendors, suppliers, and service providers.
Half day (09:00-13:00) to one day (09:00-17:00), depending on the needs, the content of the program and the case studies. We always tailor the program to the needs of each client.
Our instructors are working professionals that have the necessary knowledge and experience in the fields in which they teach. They can lead full-time, part-time, and short-form programs that are tailored to your needs. You will always know up front who the instructor of the training program will be.
George Lekatis can also lead the class. His background and some testimonials can be found at: https://www.cyber-risk-gmbh.com/George_Lekatis_Testimonials.pdf
