The purpose of the training is to understand the key concepts and principles of Privacy and Data Protection in a professional context.

We will also explain, in practice, what are the key points of attention in order to legally collect and manage data. We will cover typical inbound and outbound points of data and give guidelines in order to perform a successful internal data audit. Finally, we will provide you with additional explanation about the ACC’s Data Protection model.
