Since the advent of COVID-19, there is no doubt that interpersonal relationships have taken a 180º turn, not only in the private sphere but also at work. Videoconferencing has made it possible to keep in touch with our loved ones as well as to pursue our professional activity.
Therefore, it is essential to make sure that when we hold video-conferences at work, either with our team or with third parties such as customers and suppliers, we ensure that we comply with the provisions of the legislation on data protection.
In the same way that the application must comply with the RGPD, we must also do so. If the video-conference is recorded and is with a third party, we must inform them of those aspects listed in articles 13 and 14 of the RGPD and 11 of the LOPDGDD, and seek their explicit consent (legal basis set out in art. 6.1 letter a) of the RGPD). If the purpose for which the data subject's personal data is processed changes, consent must be obtained again.
The DPO certification is considered as a valid and appropriate tool to evaluate objectively and impartially that the DPO has an adequate level of competence required for the exercise of the functions entrusted to this figure. ANF AC, as a Certification Entity recognised by ENAC, has the necessary technical competence for the certification of DPO in accordance with the AEPD Scheme.
If you have successfully passed any of the courses given by the Training Entities recognised by any Certification Entity1 and/or accredit sufficient professional experience2 in functions related to those of the DPD, do not hesitate to take the last step and get certified.
Every month there is a call for applications so that you can select the date that best suits your schedule. Link to the next calls scheduled in Madrid and Barcelona: https://www.anf.es/en/entidad-de-certificacion/
