GDPR in Shipping

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force on 25 May 2018. While many of its provisions already applied under existing national and European data protection laws, the advent of the GDPR raised the profile of the issue and concentrated the minds of those in organizations that are now faced with the possibility of huge fines for any failure to protect adequately the personal data of their customers and employees and, most importantly, to report when a breach has occurred.

Under GDPR, companies, and people are obligated to do three basic things: to ensure that data is held only for specific reasons and purposes; to ensure data subjects’ consent is not only freely given but as easy to withdraw as to provide, and to ensure systems for the storage and processing of data are secure.


The Course aims to inform and raise awareness to the attendees about the requirements of the General Regulation for the Processing of Personal Data (Personal Data) – Regulation 2016/679, its practical implications, the risks of “Non-Compliance”, its obligations and responsibilities. The course focuses on the most difficult topics, providing practical solutions, tips and answers at all levels so that attendees are capable of being fully compliant with the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), avoiding fines in case of inspections.
