The course will look briefly into GDPR in general and aims to focus on the special categories of data processing. During the session we will discuss the legal basis to process normal types of data as described in Article 6 of the regulation, together with the legal basis to process special categories of data as provided under Article 9 of GDPR.
Furthermore, the course will examine how a data controller shall perform a Privacy Impact Assessment to examine the privacy risk when processing special categories of data within a project. As an example, the course will look into the processing of biometric data to verify the identity of an individual through digital means.
