Date to be announced.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is new legislation that provides a single, harmonised data privacy law for the European Union. The GDPR has replaced the old Directive and is directly applicable from 25 May 2018 in all Member States. The GDPR will affect every organisation that processes EU residents’ personally identifiable information (PII).

This EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course also imposes obligations on companies to not only document and safeguard information on identifiable living persons but companies must also be able to evidence compliance.

With the increasing risk of data breaches and cyber-attacks, the GDPR aims to prevent the loss of personal data by improving data security for all individuals living in EU member states.

What this course provides.
This is a comprehensive one-day course which will provide attendees with a clear understanding of the new law and the practical expectations required of companies and staff who process personal data under the new EU GDPR.

This course will assist attendees in understanding how to prepare their organisation for the changes and how to facilitate, accommodate and implement the new requirements. It will also show how to embed the concept of best practice in day to day behaviours and how to communicate that to others.

This course will explain the new rules regarding the legal basis for processing, consent, privacy notices, control of personal data, mandatory breach reporting, complaints and penalties as well as practical guidance on what organisations can do to remain compliant.

This GDPR course is ideal for professionals who handle personal data and who need an overall understanding of how GDPR will affect their business.

Key people mainly include:
• Business Directors and Managers
• Data Protection Officers
• IT Managers
• Project Managers
