If you’re a professional seeking an opportunity to expand on your privacy knowledge regarding EU regulations, this course is for you.

The course is also 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.
