Joined-Up Regulation

Joined-Up Regulation

A one-day workshop with eLearning

New regulations often require major overhauls of processes, systems, governance and accountabilities. The EU's General Data Protection Regulation is a case in point which fundamentally changes the management of personal data.

Data lies at the heart of an organisation. Processes and decision taking depend on good data so careful planning and competent execution is needed when making changes. A regulation by regulation approach is inefficient, costly and increases risk.

A better approach is to have a clear model of the organisation's data and use that as the basis for assessing the impact of relevant regulations and creating a meaningful road map for change.

This course describes a practical high level data model, a review of several significant regulations and an outline of creating a roadmap for change.

This module is part of the EDMworks Data Management Agenda for Privacy

Our Joined-up Regulation course will:
