After the entry into force of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a lot of time was spent on organizing privacy and data protection in organizations. Priority has been given to the topic and capacity has been freed up. At a certain point, attention for the subject diminished and we now see that privacy and data protection are more often than not anchored in organizations.

Meanwhile, the Dutch Data Protection Authority (AP) is not sitting still and neither are the other European supervisors. Recent fining decisions show that organizations can get into serious trouble if they do not comply with the obligations under the GDPR. Failure to comply with, for example, the security obligation imposed on organizations by the GDPR can result in a hefty fine.

Case law of civil courts and of the Council of State is developing. Those involved are increasingly turning to these authorities to exercise their rights, and judges are increasingly having to consider liability claims after ransomware attacks, for example. Judges have recently been granting claims from data subjects for compensation if organizations breach the GDPR.

These developments strongly fuel the need for more knowledge about current affairs in the field of privacy and data protection. The management and also the employees want to know what the consequences are for their business activities so that they can act accordingly. This module meets this need. A new version of this module is published every quarter, and a workshop is organized every month.
