The EU GDPR Foundation training course outline

The GDPR provides a single, harmonised data privacy law for the EU. It aims to ensure that data protection practices are up to date and preserve EU residents’ rights regarding their personal data. The GDPR came into effect on 25 May 2018 and is now legally enforceable, meaning organisations that fail to comply could face harsh fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater.

This one-day Foundation course provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR, and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for organisations of any size. It is also a stepping stone to the GDPR Practitioner course.
