GDPR DPO University

Cooley – 1114 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY

The EU General Data Protection Regulation has required many organizations to appoint Data Protection Officers. With demand for DPOs far outstripping the supply, many newly minted DPOs need to quickly develop data protection expertise and pragmatically apply it to help their organizations comply with the GDPR.

Cooley’s cyber/data/privacy practice’s GDPR DPO University will help newly minted DPOs get their data protection footing and develop an understanding of how to address their responsibilities in a business environment that requires DPOs to balance legitimate business interests with individuals’ privacy rights.

  • Beginner: Data protection & GDPR basics, understanding business impact
  • Advanced: GDPR and global privacy landscape, understanding business impact
