Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Foundation - IBITGQ

Benefit: Gain a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for organisations in this one-day GDPR Foundation training course held in various UK locations.

Get GDPR-ready – learn how the new regulation will affect your organisation

More extensive in scope and application than the current Data Protection Act (DPA), the EU GDPR extends the data rights of individuals, and requires organisations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data, and adopt appropriate technical and organisational measures. 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 – whichever is greater. 

Develop your professional career

The course supports professional development, and delegates who pass the included exam are awarded the ISO 17024-certificated EU GDPR Foundation (EU GDPR F) qualification by IBITGQ. It is also certificated 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, B1 and C2.
