Tilburg University

In Fall 2018, the 13th edition of the successful course on privacy and data protection legislation will take place. During 5 days (all Fridays) the participants will gain a foundational understanding of the relevant legislation and case law, as well as practical experience in handing data protection issues via case studies. As the previous Data Protection Directive has been replaced in May 2018 by the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the course will prepare the participants in view of the new challenges and obligations that will be in place when the GDPR becomes applicable. Special attention will be given to issues prominent in an international setting of data use, including on the scope of application of the Regulation and compliance with the EU data transfer rules (including the implications of the recently adopted Privacy Shield on data transfers between the EU and the US). Both the new rules as well as their organizational embedding, including guidance on complying with the accountability principle, information on when and how to perform Data Protection Impact Assessments and practical instructions how to implement the required contractual agreements within businesses and in relation with third parties (hosting of data bases, outsourcing of IT and cloud contracts) will be explained in detail during the course. Finally, several security issues including the new data breach notification requirements will be dealt with.

The course will allow the participants to be closely involved and interact with experts in the field of privacy and data protection. The course will enable the participants to independently supervise, advice and manage issues on a wide range of privacy and data protection related issues. Based on practical examples the participants will obtain a comprehensive overview and insight into the core doctrines and notions of data protection and privacy rules and security requirements, and acquire knowledge on their implementation in day-to-day practice.
