Proving Privacy - Assurance, Standards and Certification: All you need to know

  • Text Hover

You’ve developed a kick ass privacy programme – but how do you prove it?

This is a course where we discuss all the mechanisms that can grant your stakeholders confidence in your approach to privacy – from measurement and metrics to audit and assurance.  

Course Overview

We identify who the stakeholders are, and what mechanisms give them confidence in your approach to privacy, and what the Accountability requirements of the applied GDPR require you to document.

Processor and Vendor management is a key area to many organisations, so we practically discuss what levels of assurance you should look for from your third party suppliers and partners, and how this varies dependant on risk.

We also focus on the emerging areas of certifications, through both the Supervisory Body and the National Accreditation body routes mentioned in the Applied GDPR, including looks at BS 10012, ISO 27552, ISO 29100- the difference between privacy and security certifications such as ISO 27001 (for information security elements), and how to choose and obtain any relevant commercial “badges” to demonstrate your management of personal data.”
