Program Description

In May 2018, with the enforced of the General Regulation on Data Protection (GRDP) in the EU, privacy and data protection issues have become a crucial and fundamental element of the organizations and trade relations procedures’. A mixture of recognition and concern about the personal data real value, associated with very high fines, has led many organizations to initiate projects to ensure compliance with the GRDP and, where necessary, to appoint Data Privacy Officers (DPOs).

However, complying with the GRDP is more like a marathon, implying a profound change of culture, beyond the legal aspects and components of technological nature, information systems and computer security.

The 5th Edition of the General Program for Data Protection of CATÓLICA-LISBON, organized in partnership with Católica| Lisbon School of Law, was revised in order to integrate new dimensions and matters, resulting right from the first months of practical application. The new modules "Implementation of Data Protection Program: practical lessons" and "Breach and response management", as well as a greater focus on the Course Project, which is one of the most valued and distinct factors by the participants.

At the end of the Program, participants will be able to lead GRDP implementation projects in organizations.
