There will be trainings for Administrators of Information Security
Trainings for Administrators of Information Security - future Data Protection Officers – from public sector
GIODO has received EU funding for trainings and webinars devoted to the implementation of the GDPR.
The General Data Protection Regulation will apply from 25 May 2018. The Regulation imposes many new obligations on data controllers - including a completely new approach to the protection of personal data. This new approach is included in the principle of accountability. More information on the reform of the data protection law is available in the section dedicated to the new law, where you can find a set of questions prepared by GIODO. This set of questions indicates the most important issues and areas where significant changes will take place.
Proper implementation and usage of the GDPR rules will be challenging. To meet this challenge, it is worth appointing an expert – a Data Protection Officer (DPO), who will support the controller in performing tasks related to data processing. For public sector entities the appointment of the DPO will be obligatory.
Among many new tasks and competences, which strengthen the position of the Data Protection Officers, the provisions of the Regulation require the candidates for DPO’s position to have an expertise knowledge on the law and practices in the field of data protection. The Inspector General for Personal Data Protection wants to play a very important role in providing this relevant professional knowledge through organized workshops and trainings - so far we have already trained a group of over 800 Administrators of Information Security from higher education or the medical sector.
In January 2018, GIODO started the implementation of the T4DATA project, during which, together with data protection authorities from Italy, Spain, Bulgaria and Croatia, a series of trainings for Data Protection Officers (currently the Administrators of Information Security) from public sector will be prepared. In Poland, the trainings will cover 600 people. In addition, there will be created a platform where the entities from public sector will take the advantage of the webinars offering knowledge about proper implementation of the GDPR rules.
The project is co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Program of the European Union (2014-2020). The co-financing amount is EUR 535.579.00.
