New GDPR webinar: Requirements for conducting a data protection impact assessment

IT Governance, the global cybersecurity experts.

IT Governance, the leading provider of data protection and information security expertise, has launched its webinar on data protection impact assessment (DPIAs)

ELY, UNITED KINGDOM, September 4, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The new webinar series is designed to help organisations prepare for the GDPR, which comes into effect in May 2018. The series begins on Thursday, 7 September with ‘The GDPR and its requirements for implementing data protection impact assessments (DPIAs)’ presented by the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, Alan Calder.

Alan Calder said: “Effective data protection is now a core competence that all organisations must develop and sustain internally in line with the GDPR. There is considerable work to be done assessing the risks and implementing new control measures.”

Webinar attendees will learn about how to conduct effective DPIAs to identify and reduce the data protection risks of a project or system. The webinar will focus on the benefits of conducting DPIAs, the legal requirements to do so and practical steps towards implementation.

The DPIA webinar will be followed by additional webinars in the GDPR series, addressing further practical areas of the GDPR, such as data flow mapping and getting started with compliance projects. Each webinar has a Q&A session, when attendees can submit questions to our GDPR and data protection experts.
