This course delves into the concept of Privacy by Design (PbD) and provides practical strategies for managing privacy considerations throughout the development and implementation of digital products and services.
Throughout the course, participants will explore the fundamental principles and frameworks that underpin Privacy by Design. They will gain a deep understanding of privacy laws, regulations, and standards, both at the domestic and international levels, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Students will also examine emerging trends and best practices in privacy protection, including privacy-enhancing technologies, consent management, data minimisation, and user-centric design.
The course places a strong emphasis on the application of Privacy by Design principles in real-world scenarios. Participants will learn how to conduct privacy impact assessments, develop privacy policies and practices, and establish privacy governance frameworks within organisations. They will explore strategies for embedding privacy considerations into the design and development processes, ensuring that privacy is integrated from the ground up rather than an afterthought. Additionally, the course covers the management of privacy risks and incidents. Students will learn how to identify and mitigate privacy risks in various technological contexts, including cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, social media platforms, and mobile applications. They will also gain insights into effective incident response strategies, breach notification requirements, and the establishment of a culture of privacy within organisations.
Throughout the course, a multidisciplinary approach is emphasised, drawing upon legal, technical, and ethical perspectives.
Note: The course curriculum may be subject to adjustments and updates to reflect the evolving landscape of privacy regulations and technologies.
