Introduction to Risk Assessment and Management including DPIA

Risk management principles are effectively used in a lot of areas of business and government including finance, insurance, occupational safety, public health, pharmacovigilance, and by agencies regulating these industries. Data protection, or privacy, impact assessments (DPIA) are essential for organisations to identify, understand and address any privacy risk/issue that might arise when handling personal data.

Personnel working with personal data should be skilled in risk management and DPIA’s to ensure their activities are in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679).

CTG can provide training to your employees to ensure they are appropriately trained and have adequate skills and experience to perform their assigned duties.
