  • Attend a GDPR workshop, GDPr Conference or GDPR webinar

Do you want to attend a practical GDPR workshop, GDPR conference or GDPR webinar either on the internet or in your city? Global data protection regulation around the world is in a state of flux – there have been several major recent developments. These are fundamental changes that affect your compliance efforts, how you process personal data and the risks you face. Change is never easy, but you simply can’t ignore these developments.

If your organisation has to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR), you will be considering what action you can take to get more informed. GDPR forms part of a set of laws, codes and regulations that fall into the broad category of Data Protection. We’ve learnt that is valuable to take a broader view of data protection rather than looking at the GDPR in isolation. We recommend that you start by attending our public data protection workshop. In our data protection workshop about 90% of what we cover relates to the GDPR and the remaining 10% is likely to be relevant to you too.

However if you are certain that you should specifically only be looking at the GDPR we can present a private in house workshop. This can take the form of an in-person executive briefing or a full day workshop on the GDPR presented by an expert with practical experience.

The information below sets out what would be covered in a private GDPR workshop.

  • Get an overview of these complex laws and know what practical action to take.
  • Get up-to-speed quickly and be up-to-date with the latest developments regards data protection compliance.
  • Understand the impact on your organisation.
  • Find out how to comply and implement data protection compliance in your organisation.
  • GDPR is relevant for South African companies who do business with Europe and also for South African companies who want a glimpse into the future of what POPIA may hold.

If you are certain that you should specifically only be looking at the GDPR we can present a private in-house workshop. This can take the form of an in-person executive briefing or a full day workshop on the GDPR presented by an expert with practical experience. We aim to give practical insights that you can use to be effective. We do not give law lectures! We will refund you if you do not think you received value. Our tailored private workshops are for an unlimited number of delegates, provided your training venue can accommodate this.

Please enquire by completing the form on the right and we will provide you with a quote.

We tailor what we cover for each specific event. The GDPR workshop is broken down into nine sessions. Please email us and ask for the GDPR Workshop Programme if you would like details. This is not an academic workshop for students. It is for people dealing with these issues in their organisations.

We can help you answer these questions. Cut through the complexity and explain it simply. We help organisations around the world comply with global data protection laws in a practical and effective manner. We have a global view and have insights into 25 different local jurisdictions.

When it comes to implementing the GDPR laws and regulations (including POPIA and data protection) – people and organisations often struggle with identifying where to start. What we’ve realised is that:

We want to you to get value out of the investments (both time and money)  you make in training. So we’ve designed a questionnaire that will help us to help you identify the course of action best suited to your organisation. We take into account the potential impact of these laws on your organisation, while factoring in your budget and the resources available to you. So,

before booking data protection training:

please complete our Data Protection high-level Impact Assessment questionnaire. It will take you about 4 minutes and there is no charge to you, and we’ll get back to you with suggestions of a way forward, so that you can make an informed choice.

We will provide attendees with:

  • a copy of our comprehensive presentation covering data protection regulations,
  • our Data Protection Mapper
  • a List of Quick Wins
  • GDPR POPIA Comparison Report (hardcopy)
  • GDPR Key Insights handout
  • GDPR Key insights 45-minute video

Very intelligent, experienced and educated people often attend our workshops. They usually know more about their fields than we do, so we see ourselves as facilitators helping the group to explore the topic. We always encourage people to add their value at any stage.

Any organisation that processes a lot of personal data. This could be an organisation in the public or private sector (like a bank or a medical aid). The industries that are most affected are Financial Services, Healthcare and Marketing. Banks, retailers, credit providers, insurance companies, medical aid companies, hospitals, direct marketers, business process outsources and telcos are some of the organisations on which data protection law has a high impact. The essence of some organisations is the processing of personal information – the impact on them is huge.

  • We have significant practical experience dealing with these specific areas.
  • Our sessions are interactive – you are able to ask questions, have your specific issues dealt with, and influence the discussion-points.
  • Our sessions are tailored to the attendees – we ask you questions in advance so that we know what your issues are and your existing level of knowledge.
  • We do not give sales pitches, which is unfortunately so often what speakers do at conferences.
  • We provide insight and simplify the issues, which can only be done after practically applying laws to real business issues.
  • We empower you and do not try to entrench ourselves in your organisation.
  • We cover the same ground in one day, rather than two. This saves you time and money. We tell you what you need to know, not everything.

We have a pool of experienced and practical presenters, including:

We will ensure the presenters are the best people to present the course depending on the type of course, the date, the specific issues and the attendees. Sometimes, there will be one presenter, others multiple speakers. Our presenters are currently helping many people understand the practical impact of data protection regulations on their organisations. They help them to comply with data protection law and implement effective privacy projects and programmes. They have also presented many times on the topic to thousands of people. They have years of practical experience applying their knowledge to organisations to help them grow and avoid legal problems, difficulties, and disputes.
