Description

Learn how the GDPR affects your organisation.

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) Training 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 the precursor to our Certified EU GDPR Practitioner training course.

Delivered by an experienced data protection practitioner, this training session is built on the foundations of our extensive practical experience gained advising on compliance with data privacy laws and related information security standards such as ISO 27001.

The course supports professional development and attendees who pass the included exam are awarded the ISO 17024-certificated EU GDPR Foundation (EU GDPR F) qualification by IBITGQ. It is also accredited by the Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) and satisfies the IISP Skills Framework requirements at Level 1: A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, B2 and C3.

EU GDPR F examination

Delegates take the EU GDPR F examination at the end of the course – a 60-minute multiple-choice, ISO 17024-certificated exam set by IBITGQ. There is no extra charge for this exam.

This course is part of our unique EU GDPR Learning Path, which also includes the Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Practitioner (GDPR) Training Course. It also supports continued professional development programmes by qualifying for seven CPD/CPE credits.

Please note that all EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Foundation and Practitioner exams are online exams, so you will need to bring a ‘pop-up enabled’ laptop/tablet to the venue. Full details on how to access the exam will be provided by email 1-2 days before sitting the exam.
