In 2018 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect with new, enforceable regulations for the handling and storing of data, to create a safer data environment. This means organisations will be looking to Data Protection Officers (DPO) to oversee their data protection.

The Universities of Derby and Loughborough are offering FREE DPO training places addressing the changes in the data protection regulations and how this impacts on developing, overseeing,
and implementing data protection policy.

The Data Protection Officer (DPO) course is relevant for those looking to play an active role in data management and the implementation of data protection policies, ensuring their organisation is compliant with the new standards. It will also be useful to others wishing to learn more about the implications of the new data protection regulations.

Training sessions will run on 8 and 22 of March 2019, 10am-4:30pm.

Sessions will focus on:

  • Legal Module: with a focus on providing knowledge about the legal framework for data protection
  • Technical, organisational and Impact Assessment: targeting technical aspects of data creation, management, storing, as well as the ability to devise data management strategies and evaluate the impact of policies
  • Behavioural and Security: aimed at allowing participants to understand the impact of data in the behaviour of a given organisation, and to acquire the ability to manage the security-related aspects involved

Places are limited to 30 participants so booking is essential. To register for training or for further information please contact: Lesley at
