Course Description

GDPR – Data Processing Agreements and EU Standard Contractual Clauses - Their Application and Contents

This 2 hour on-line session provides an overview of the EU GDPR requirements for agreements between data controllers and data processors (and others) concerning the processing of EU residents’ personal data. 

The GDPR makes data processing agreements (DPAs) mandatory and prescribes the issues they must address.  Australian companies are not immune from the GDPR nor from the requirement to enter into DPAs or EU Standard Contractual Clauses. 
These agreements are relevant to many supplier and customer relationships and privacy professionals, in-house lawyers, procurement professionals and supply chain mangers need to be aware of them.
