Support training activities on the data protection reform (STAR) - Final conference

This event will introduce and discuss the final results of the STAR project (co-funded by the European Union (EU) under its Rights, Equality and Citizenship programme (2014-2020) which supports training activities of EU Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) and Data Protection Officers (DPOs) on the EU data protection reform, and especially on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The panel will identify the challenges and best practices around data protection training. The panel will then launch the ready-made, easy-to-customise and easy-to-run training materials, (i.e. 11 Microsoft PowerPoint presentations, training scenarios, further supporting forms as well as a handbook for trainers and users of the materials) targeted for DPAs and DPOs and which are freely and publicly available in a digital form at the project’s website: http://www.project-star.eu/training-materials. During the event speakers will guide the audience through the STAR materials and, in form of a discussion, gather their feedback and experience from training activities thereafter.
