The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) is new legislation that provides a single, harmonised data privacy law for the European Union. With the increasing risk of data breaches from cyber attack, the EU GDPR aims to prevent the loss of personal data by improving data security for all individuals living in EU member states. UK organisations have until May 2018 to comply with the new law, or potentially face fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million.
The Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Foundation and Practitioner Combination course consists of the Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation (one-day) and Practitioner (four-day) training courses. This unique training programme provides a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of the EU GDPR, and a practical guide to planning, implementing and maintaining an EU GDPR compliance programme. It also enables delegates to fulfil the mandatory role of data protection officer (DPO) under the EU GDPR.
The course also supports professional development: delegates who pass the included exams are awarded the ISO 17024-accredited EU GDPR Foundation (EU GDPR F) and EU GDPR Practitioner (EU GDPR P) qualifications by IBITGQ.
