Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Foundation Training Course

The EU GDPR Will Come Into Effect 25 May 2018. Are You Going To Be Ready?

Introduction

Get ready for the EU GDPR! Learn how the new regulation will affect your organisation.

More extensive in scope and application than the current Data Protection Act (DPA), the EU GDPR extends the data rights of individuals, and requires organisations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data, and adopt appropriate technical and organisational measures. UK organisations have until May 2018 to comply with the new law, or potentially face fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million - whichever is greater.

The one-day Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Foundation training course provides a comprehensive introduction to the EU GDPR and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for organisations of any size. The course is a stepping stone to the Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Practitioner.
