Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Foundation Training

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

On May 25th 2018, the EU GDPR enforcement begins. Organizations that process, monitor, and store data belonging to EU citizens would have overhauled their marketing, system, and processing methods to ensure the safety of personal data against any form breach.

The GDPR Foundation course will help you make your systems more functional and compliant. It will also provide a comprehensive introduction to the regulation, and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for UK and EU organisations of any size including international businesses that handle personal data of UK and EU citizens.

The impact of non-compliance is significant on organizations – 4% of global annual turnover or €20 million. This course will help you develop your awareness of the requirements. The GDPR Foundation course is delivered by our experts building on the foundations of our extensive practical experience gained advising on compliance with data privacy laws and related information security standards, such as ISO/IEC 27001. By attending also, you will be better prepared to carry out a discussion around the new regulation, conform to the parameters, as well as understand the background, updated concepts, principles, terms and definitions used in the GDPR.

This foundation course will also help you understand how the regulation works, so you can prepare and work towards compliance plus you’ll be in a position to start a scoping exercise that can then lead to a gap analysis, privacy impact and risk assessment or a full data protection audit.
