Trainings for Heads of Unit/Heads of Sector – New Dates

Dates:

  • 03 July, 25 September, 24 October, 20 November and 18 December 2019

EU institutions' managers can enrol online here in EU learn.

Trainings for Heads of Unit/Heads of Sector given by the EDPS in the framework of the European School of Administration (EUSA) lunch conference.

Aim

New personal data protection rules for EU institutions have entered into force on 11 December 2018. The aim of this training session is to prepare EU institutions' managers for these new data protection rules.

Content

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 events, managing visitors to dealing with contracts, grants and tenders, personal data is everywhere! Also, drafting legislative proposals, implementing or delegated acts (or international agreements) may lead to processing of personal data in many cases.

The law applicable to EU institutions and bodies when they process personal data of individuals has changed. The new Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 has significant implications for all those dealing with personal data in their work.

The updated rules will impose current and new obligations. This course aims to help you prepare for these new rules. The course gives you a practical overview of your obligations as Heads of Units/Heads of Sectors (Top management), but also as case officers in charge of procedures (Business owners) within the EU institutions: data protection principles, your institution's "accountability" in practice, how to embed data protection principles in new procedures and projects under your responsibility, what to do in case of personal data breaches, how to ensure data protection compliance in your procurement procedures and much more.

The course is given by staff of the European Data Protection Supervisor, the EU institutions' supervisory authority in the field of personal data protection. Besides many practical examples from their supervisory activities, they also include a Q&A session and thematic case studies (procurement and joint controllership, events organisation, personal data breach notifications).

Participants are provided with sandwiches and drinks.
