Organizations are required to comply with data protection laws, namely the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as possible non-compliance could greatly damage an organizations’ reputation, lead to court proceedings and cost significant amounts of money.
During your studies/work/scientific career you will likely have to collect or process personal data from other people. So, knowing how to effectively protect that data is extremely important.
As part of the i3S GDPR compliance strategy, we have implemented a training plan in 'Data Protection' that aims to inform i3S members on issues related to ‘Data Protection and the GDPR’ and ‘Information Security’.
Given the importance of GDPR compliance, it is strongly recommended that all i3S members do this Training, particularly those who work with personal data.
