Dublin GDPR Implementation Bootcamp

The Challenge of Implementing GDPR Conformance

Are you responsible for ensuring that your SME conforms to the requirements of GDPR? You know what needs to be done but how, who and when are challenging open issues.

During this workshop you will develop a detailed implementation plan and schedule of how and when the work will be done and by whom. 

The Bootcamp format leverages from Best Practice Project Management according to the international standard ISO 21500:2012 applied to the specific case of GDPR conformity. You benefit from the experience of the course consultant and the interaction with other participants who have similar objectives.

Important: This is an implementation workshop, not advice on GDPR itself.
