Tailored Programmes

The GDPR and Data Protection Programme for Data Protection Officers (DPOs) in the Public Service is aimed at public servants with responsibility for Data Protection within their organisation, and has been developed to inform, and support, public sector Data Protection Officers in their roles, by providing a common shared approach and understanding of key data protection knowledge and challenges within the public sector. 

The programme content has been informed, and guided by, the Civil Service DPO Network, in ensuring the key topics are relevant and appropriate to the work of DPOs, and the wider network of public servants supporting the GDPR and Data Protection function within their organisations.

It is envisaged that each iteration of the programme will evolve to reflect the current legislative requirements and updates, if any, in addition to the broader data protection knowledge base and subject matter expertise available to us.
