conducting data protection impact assessments


Get Ahead
in Data Protection

with the data protection impact assessment Course

Do you need help understanding what DPIAs are, when they are needed, and how to complete one?

If so, then take this one-day course. You will learn what a DPIA is, when one should be carried out, roles and responsibilities, and the process of completing one. This course will enhance your knowledge of data protection law, DPIAs, and the regulations which will enable you to make a positive step towards delivering compliance.

The course is interactive, so you will be encouraged to ask questions throughout, and can share your real-world experiences with other attendees, discussing issues and ideas to help them within their role. You’ll also talk through real-life practice scenarios to aid with your learning.

When you train with us at DPAS, you’ll get more than just the training. We’ll provide you with free policies, templates, and tools – after the course has concluded. We will also supply you with the relevant resources to help you throughout.

If you want to speak to clients who have experienced our range of training courses, then get in touch. We are always happy to pass on contact details of our customers – with their consent, of course!

When you train with us, you receive access to free tools, templates, policies, and more – which you can use in your organisation. We also offer one month of support after the courses to ensure your questions are answered and that you’re confident going forward.

If you want us to train your staff virtually we can! Alternatively, if you’d prefer a more interactive approach, we can come to your place of work. We will always try and fit in with you and will be more than happy to discuss options.

We can offer bespoke training created for your organisation. For example, we can simulate a cyber attack for your Senior Managers to see how they would react to a real life threat, best preparing them for those situations should they ever arise.
