This course is designed to introduce students to the EU General Data Protection Regulatory (GDPR) standard and provide them with through knowledge of the steps required for successfully planning and implementing an ongoing compliance program. To achieve this goal, the course equips students with the knowledge a Data Protection Officer (DPO) is expected to possess and practice. DOPs are mandatory resources in every organization in the EU whose operations run on central data storage and processing. As a new comprehensive law for data protection applied across the EU, the EU GDPR directive creates a fundamental reference point that is used as foundation for sophisticated security problems. The law and regulatory standard particularly prevents unauthorized access to Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Stringent in its data protection protocols, the GDPR applies to all organizations that deal with PII.
