Happy New 2021
The final stretch of 2020 or the beginning of the launch of the 2021 decade. And what a disruption 2020 was!
All businesses felt the business and corporate impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) throughout the globe. We all had to navigate in rough seas to address a broad range of the interrelated pandemic issues that span from keeping the stakeholders safe, cash and liquidity, repositioning operations and steering through or clear of complicated support programs. We trust that despite the corporate distractions, you achieved business accomplishments, successes, and events.
As usual, it is now time for reflections—how to carry out our goals in 2021? Do we see the light at the end of the tunnel, or is it an approaching locomotive? How to address and find solutions to some of the pressing but deferred corporate issues; are we getting a firm grip on the crucial compliance issues that take considerable time and effort to fulfil?
— Weighing the above prominent issues together with concerns like corporate health (Good Governance and IT Governance) the risks and rewards, and the corporate contributions through CSR, ESG, SDG’s will probably continue to be on the top of the directors and the corporate agenda.
At the Copenhagen Compliance® Group (including The EUGDPR Institute and The e-compliance.academy and The Information-Security.Institute, 2020 was another significant year. Once again, we addressed and explained the topical and timely global GRC, GDPR Data Protection, Privacy, and IT-Security issues at seminars, workshops, conferences, roundtables and fireside chats.
The year started with training and certification assignments in Pune (India) Budapest (Hungary) and Amman (Jordan) and the annual DPO day in Copenhagen (Denmark) however from early march our GRC, Data Privacy, Protection, GDPR and IT Security tasks ended abruptly. We resaddled delivering the GRC and GDPR Foundation, DPO/Controller/Processer and Practitioner certification masterclasses annual conferences from individual focused groups to conduct everything online both as classrooms and self-paced certification courses.
The new contribution to our portfolios is the monthly classroom certification seminars, https://www.e-compliance.academy/online-certification-classroom-training/ and the Director’s Dialogue on GDPR reporting to the Board of Directors.
In 2021 we plan to offer the following:

We are grateful to all our participants, clients, and stakeholders to be able to continue, since 2005, our global efforts to promote the GRC/GDPR, IT and Cybersecurity pain points. We will continue to provide knowledge, guidance, and solutions to the GRC, GDPR and IT security issues that need attention.
