Full course description
Data subject privacy and data protection risk assessment lays at the basis of a thorough and effective data protection compliance framework. In fact, carrying out a risk assessment on all data processing activities and a DPIA on the ones that are likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons is essential to design data processing that both legally compliant and ethically respectful of the data subjects. This skills course teaches the students efficient ways to plan and conduct systematic risk assessment activities and specific DPIA where needed. Models of risk assessments and methodologies to perform a DPIA will be explained, discusses and practised. More precisely, the students will be required to prepare their own risk assessment plan and a number of full DPIAs on the basis of practical case studies given during the course. After completing this course together with Skills 1.1., the students will have a capacity to build a robust data protection compliance framework for their company or organisation pursuant to the risk-based approach and to the principles of Data Protection by Design and Data Protection by Default.
