GDPR Foundation self-paced online training course outline

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides a single, harmonised data privacy law for the EU. It aims to prevent the loss of personal data by improving data security for all individuals living in EU member states. The GDPR came into force on 25 May 2018, and organisations that fail to comply face fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater.

The one-day Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation (GDPR) Distance Learning 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 GDPR Practitioner course
