Following the great success of the first edition, the School in Digital Governance expands its training offering this year, allowing its participants, thanks to the agreement with TÜV Thüringen Italia s.r.l., to obtain certification for the qualification of “Data Protection System Expert”, a professional figure who is expert in supporting the Data Protection Officer and/or Privacy Manager in setting up the appropriate technical and organizational measures for the processing of personal data.

The Data Protection System Expert is able to guide and inform public and private entities to comply with the European Regulation and other data protection provisions, verify that the new regulations and company policies are properly implemented, and ensure the correct implementation of the processing of personal data.
