Trainings for Heads of Unit/Heads of Sector given by the EDPS in the framework of the EUSA lunch conference with the participation of Philippe Renaudiere, Data Protection Officer at the European Commission.
Subject/purpose of the training
Everyday, Heads of Units/ Heads of Sectors in the EU institutions and bodies collect, use or store (process) personal data in the course of their work. From selection and recruitment, staff appraisals, administrative inquiries, organising meetings, managing visitors to dealing with contracts, grants and tenders, personal data is everywhere!
The law applicable to the EU institutions and bodies when they process the personal data of individuals is about to change. The new Regulation will come into effect in spring 2018 (repealing Regulation (EC) 45/2001) and has implications for all those dealing with personal data in their work.
The updated rules will impose new obligations but will also remove some of the administrative burdens. This course aims to give you a practical overview of your obligations as Heads of Units/Heads of Sectors within the EU institutions: how to protect the information you collect, where to store it, who should have access to it, how long you should keep it and much more.
