Description

Course overview


The EU GDPR Foundation 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) 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 EU GDPR Practitioner course.

Having recently completed both the GDPR Foundation and Practitioner course with IT Governance, I cannot recommend them enough. The training delivered by Sharon was fast paced, fun, interesting and extremely informative, an excellent preparation for the exams.

If you hold data which could be subject to GDPR, these courses will provide you and your colleagues with the tools and knowledge to understand the legal requirements in place to protect the rights of your data subjects and your organisation. Excellent investment!
