Get up to date on data protection with this popular certificate
The Diploma Centre’s Certificate in Data Protection Practice returns on 6 October 2021 and applications are being accepted until 22 September. Focusing on GDPR and how to apply it in practice, this popular course provides knowledge essential to a range of organisations.
 
Data is a valuable commodity. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force in May 2018, has significantly changed the data protection landscape. Data protection and data security affects us all in both our personal and professional lives, so it is essential to understand the many legal responsibilities and rights associated with collecting, retaining and processing data. 
 
This certificate is designed to ensure that participants are equipped to understand and comply with the regulation’s requirements. 
 
On completion of this programme, participants will have:
 
•A comprehensive knowledge of Regulation 2016/679 (the GDPR),
•An understanding of the data protection framework in Ireland as governed by the Data Protection Acts 1988-2018,
•An ability to apply that knowledge to a range of data protection issues in practice and to evaluate the role of the data protection officer,
•The skills to advise on subject access requests, legitimate processing, data retention, consent, and international data transfers,
•The confidence to recognise when a data breach has occurred and the notification requirements,
•The ability to analyse sanctions for non-compliance and the powers of the Data Protection Commission,
•The skills to conduct a data privacy impact assessment and a data protection audit and to report on an organisation’s data governance and security. 
 
Course materials, including webcasts of lectures, will be released each week online. In addition, online participation will be required. There will be three interactive online workshops to enable participants to connect with expert contributors and to consolidate their knowledge.
