Secu4: IT Law and Data Protection for IT Managers

IT managers must make decisions every day without being aware of the legal implications. IT law and data protection are still in a process of continuous evaluation and re-evaluation. This seminar covers highly topical subjects such as the new EU Data Protection Regulation and the revised BDSG (German Federal Data Protection). Amongst others, the following questions will be addressed: Who is affected by the new IT Security Act? What is the right cloud strategy? Which solutions can be considered for data transfer to the US (privacy shield, data trust solution). How do you manage a software license audit? How do you design effective guidelines for mobile devices or a WLAN hot spot? 

The speaker is a specialist in IT law and data protection, a lecturer in information law at Stuttgart University and the author of the textbook entitled "Praxis des IT-Rechts" (Practice of IT Law).
