Workshop establishing a processing agreement

Date: Time: 13:00 Location: Online

What if I want to make use of an external party for my classes, research, or business? If Tilburg University, as the legal controller, engages a company for the processing of personal data, a processing agreement is required. This is a legal obligation under the GDPR. On Friday October 15, Privacy Officer at Executive Services Max de Bruin gives a workshop establishing a processing agreement.

October is Cyber Security Month in Europe. This annual European Union campaign aims to raise awareness of cyber security threats. Tilburg University fully endorses this campaign and that is why in the week of October 11, we give you tips about online security and privacy. On Friday October 15, Privacy Officer at Executive Services Max de Bruin gives a workshop establishing a processing agreement.

Subjects workshop

  • It is important to know some key concepts of the GDPR, namely: what is personal data, what is processing, and what is a data controller and a processor. This will be discussed in a short introduction.
  • We will also be looking at the contents of a processor agreement. What minimum requirements are set by the GDPR for this agreement?
  • It is not necessary in every situation where Tilburg University data is processed by another party to enter into a processor agreement. So: in which cases is a data processing agreement necessary?
  • If a processor agreement is necessary, how should you proceed? And what are the hot topics when drafting the agreement?

Interactive workshop

During the workshop, we will be practicing with distinguishing what roles parties play in certain situations and in what situations it is necessary to enter into a processor agreement. It is not necessary to prepare yourself before the workshop.
