This GDPR Foundation and Practitioner course is intended for:

  • Information Security Professionals
  • Compliance Officers
  • Data Protection Officers

  • Privacy Managers
  • IT Security Professionals

Prerequisites

There are no pre-set formal qualifications required prior to sitting this course - it is designed for individuals looking to enhance their knowledge of GDPR and implement a compliance programme within their business.

General Data Protection Regulation Course Overview

This 4-day EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course provides a detailed introduction to the EU GDPR, and a full overview regarding how to plan and implement a continuous compliance programme. It enables delegates to fulfil the knowledge requirements of a Data Protection Officer (DPO) – a position that is now a legal requirement in EU Organisations with a central data storage and processing function. The Knowledge Academy's GDPR course consists of the EU GDPR Foundation (two days) and GDPR Practitioner (two days) training courses.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new directive that provides a singular data protection law for the European Union - creating a reference and basis upon which security platforms can be initiated, to prevent the loss of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) as a consequence of security breaches. The GDPR will enforce stringent data protection requirements for all organisations that possess or process PII, and/or monitor the behaviour of EU citizens. Noncompliance with the directive can and already has resulted in organisations facing substantial and financially catastrophic fines of up to 4% of their global turnover or €20 million, depending on the severity of the breach and the deemed “tier” of the offence.

The GDPR replaces the Data Protection Act and ensures that data protection laws are up to date with the “internet age” and are responsive to the ever-elevating threat of security breaches and cyber-attacks. The GPDR is prescriptive and is intended to help reassure European citizens that their personal data is safe - enhancing their confidence and interaction with online services. The regulation puts the security of EU citizens at the forefront of all processing activities - including granting individuals new legal rights concerning access and data erasure, and holding organisations accountable for any obligations that they fail to adhere to. The UK is also subject to a new version of the Data Protection Act, the DPA 2018, which complements the GDPR and features additional structures for data processing in law enforcement. The Knowledge Academy also offers a course on Law Enforcement Processing under the new DPA. For both laws, it is imperative that individuals involved in, and responsible for, data protection and processing, have a comprehensive appreciation for the meticulous details of the GDPR - obtained through undertaking this all-inclusive GDPR Foundation and Practitioner course.

The Role of a Data Protection Officer

This EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course will guide you through the actions and responsibilities of a Data Protection Officer so you can be expertly prepared to demonstrate full compliance with the GDPR. The newly qualified GDPR DPO can be a current staff member or a contractor, however, the role must be designated on the basis of professional qualities, and expert knowledge of data protection laws. DPOs must adhere to the GDPR requirements, as listed in Article 39:

  • Inform and advise the controller or the processor and the employees who are processing personal data of their obligations pursuant to this Regulation
  • Monitor compliance with this Regulation, including the assignment of responsibilities, awareness-raising, and training of staff involved in the processing operations, and the related audits
  • Provide advice where requested with regard to the data protection impact assessment and monitor its performance pursuant to Article 35
  • Cooperate with the supervisory authority (the ICO)
  • Act as the contact point for the supervisory authority on issues related to the processing of personal data

GDPR Foundation Course Overview

This 2-day EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR’s structure, context terminology, and compliance mechanisms. Candidates will learn how to plan a continuous and longitudinal compliance programme, whilst appreciating the multifaceted role of a Data Protection Officer (DPO), Data Controller, and Data Processor under the GDPR.

The GDPR came into effect May 25th 2018 and stipulates that organisations that process, monitor, and store data belonging to EU citizens, must alter their marketing, system, and processing methods drastically to ensure the safety of data against cyber attacks and breaches. Hence, this course delineates the alterations required of an organisation by the GDPR in order to make their systems more functional and fully compliant. Candidates will learn to appreciate the necessity of the GDPR as a response to the development of technology and the proliferation of malicious cyber-attacks; in addition to developing their awareness of non-compliance fines: up to 4% of the previous year’s global turnover or €20 million, depending on the severity of the breach and the deemed offence “tier”.

The implementation of the prescriptive General Data Protection Regulation is an intentional step towards a much-needed unified data protection law across the European Union. The GDPR will elevate trust of citizens when interacting with online services, hence this course has a number of benefits for marketing and security-based organisations, as individuals will learn how to legally and optimally interact with their users.

The regulation puts the security of EU citizens at the forefront of all processing activities - including granting individuals new rights concerning access, portability, and data erasure, whilst holding organisations accountable for failing to adhere with the compliance requirements. Therefore, it is imperative that individuals responsible for data protection, storage, and processing, develop a comprehensive appreciation for the meticulous details of the impending GDPR - which can be obtained by undertaking this introductory, but extensive GDPR Foundation course.

Who Should Attend this GDPR Training Course?

This GDPR practitioner course would be beneficial for:

  • Information Security Professionals
  • Compliance Officers
  • Data Protection Officers
  • Risk Managers
  • Privacy Managers
  • IT Security Professionals

Prerequisites

Prior to sitting this course, candidates must have passed the GDPR Foundation exam. The foundation course introduces candidates to the constituents of the GDPR, which is an essential component of the practitioner course, hence candidates must have passed this first. 

GDPR Practitioner Course Overview

This 2-day EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course provides candidates with an understanding of how to implement a full GDPR compliance programme - ensuring that business systems are adequately stringent and secure. This comprehensive GDPR Practitioner course enables candidates to develop their knowledge of the new alterations to European Data Protection laws, whilst learning how to become an adept GDPR Data Protection Officer (DPO), Controller, Processor, or advisor.

The GDPR came into effect on May 25th 2018, and has been meticulously designed to enhance the security of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) belonging to EU citizens in an age of ever-developing technology and sophisticated cyber-attacks. Hence, individuals are required to develop an extensive appreciation for the constituents of a continuous compliance programme, in order to initiate the overhaul of operational systems in organisations with a central data processing, storage, or monitoring function. Compliance with the stringent, prescriptive, but necessary GDPR is imperative for the continuation of a business, in its entirety, as fines for non-compliance can reach a staggering €20 million fine or 4% of the previous year’s global turnover. As GDPR is now legally enforced, it is more important than ever for businesses to demonstrate full GDPR compliance as soon as possible.

The prescriptive General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will unify data protection laws and mechanisms across the European Union, to ensure the safety of personal data belonging to EU citizens. Hence, this GDPR Practitioner course delineates the crucial steps that must be taken to ameliorate processing and storage systems, from Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs) to optimising cloud storage and enhancing the efficiency of breach reporting operations. Delegates undertaking this course will be able to conduct a full appraisal of systems and data protection mechanisms, enabling them to identify areas for improvements within their business.  

The regulation puts the security of EU citizens at the forefront of all processing activities - including granting individual natural persons new rights concerning access, portability, and data erasure, whilst holding organisations accountable for failing to adhere with the compliance requirements. Consequently, individuals performing the role of the DPO must be versatile, have comprehensive data protection awareness, possess careful consideration for the law, and be able to communicate with Supervisory Authorities and Data Subjects simultaneously. Hence, this GDPR Practitioner course enables candidates that are responsible for data protection to develop their versatile skill-set for this new adaptable and multifaceted role.

Certified Data Protection Officer (CDPO) Course Overview

On May 25th 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation came into force in European law. Consequently, most organisations within the public and private spheres are now legally required to appoint a Data Protection Officer, who is liable for activities such as tracking compliance, performing internal audits, and directing Data Protection tasks. The few businesses that are exempt from this provision are still likely to appoint DPOs, as they would find it expedient.

The penalties for breaching the GDPR can be and have already proven to be very severe, with fines up of to 20 million or 4% of an organisation's annual global turnover from the previous financial year. The appointment of a DPO is now crucial, as fines could become more severe the longer an organisation demonstrates noncompliance. Such serious punishments work as an incentive to appoint and resource the role of a Data Protection Officer. In order to comply with the GDPR, the DPO must fulfill specific responsibilities and possess a well-defined skill set. Therefore, our Certified Data Protection Officer training course will provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the role played by a DPO.

To begin, this course will ensure delegates attain an embedded knowledge of the principles of Data Protection. The term Data Protection will be defined, and Data Protection legislation will be acknowledged. Following this, a detailed exploration of the role of the Data Protection Officer will occur. During this section, the duty of processing personal data will be covered, and the rights of data subjects will be investigated. The challenges DPOs may encounter will also be an area of interest.

Furthermore, the DPO’s role regarding data breaches, incident response, and incident recovery is analysed. Likewise, the Data Protection Officer’s position in terms of Personal Data Audits and Data Protection Impact Assessments (or DPIAs) is thoroughly examined.

EU General Data Protection Regulation Awareness Overview

This 1-day GDPR Awareness course provides an introduction to the GDPR’s terminology and purpose. Candidates will learn how to appreciate the necessity of complying with the GDPR - ensuring that personal data is secure and that your organisation does not face a catastrophic fine of up to 20 million Euros or 4% of your annual global turnover. The multifaceted nature of the GDPR means that organisations need to have their systems reviewed and enhanced - which requires a number of individuals with specialist hard-skills. Hence, this course offers an introduction to the GDPR and enables candidates to enhance their knowledge of what their role will be in maintaining a programme of compliance.

Since it came into force on May 25th 2018, the GDPR has helped unify data protection methods across the European Union  - ensuring that organisations that process, store, or monitor data are taking preventative steps to safeguard data belonging to EU citizens. The ever-growing threat of data breaches and cyber attacks means that organisations must develop stringent systems-based operations, to ensure the safety of personal data - hence this course will educate candidates of the fundamental principles, articles, and regulations that underpin the GDPR as legislation.

The regulation places citizens at the forefront of data processing and in control of their own data with new rights. Consequently, the regulation has had large repercussions for organisations involved in marketing, cloud optimisation, and data storage - it is now essential that they obtain new consent from clients for data collection, set up legal contracts, and abolish their utilisation of unstable storage mechanisms. Therefore, this GDPR training course helps explain the requirements of the GDPR for organisations and teaches candidates about how the GDPR will affect them.

Understanding how and when to respond to SARs is crucial for maintaining positive relationships with customers and even employees.

Subject Access Requests can come from any individual on whom your organisation holds data; these people are known as Data Subjects, and can be employees as well as customers. This course will help you to identify who should be considered a Data Subject, the basic rights of every Data Subject, and how to recognise and respond appropriately to SARs dependant on their origin. The course also explains the extenuating circumstances that may allow you to refuse an SAR.

As it deals with the Law Enforcement Processing section of the new Data Protection Act 2018, this course will be most helpful to individuals working in any form of law enforcement, or law enforcement organisations wishing to learn how to demonstrate compliance with the Act. However, those involved with the law in other capacities (e.g. solicitors) will also find this course helpful. For individuals wishing to learn about data protection and legislation without a specific focus on law enforcement, The Knowledge Academy is pleased to offer a wide range of GDPR training courses that have already proven useful to thousands of clients across a large variety of sectors.

Prerequisites

There are no formal prerequisites for attending this Law Enforcement Processing course, meaning that any individual with a relevant interest is welcome to attend.

Data Protection Act (DPA 2018) Course Overview

This focused one-day course on Law Enforcement Processing under the Data Protection Act 2018 covers the key points of Part 3 of the Act, teaching delegates how to demonstrate full and expansive compliance within their organisations. The course is intended to give delegates full theoretical knowledge of the Act so that they will be able to implement its requirements practically.

To this end, the course covers the whole scope of the new Law Enforcement Processing requirements, from the six basic data protection principles to the specifics of transferring data internationally for law enforcement purposes. As the new Data Protection Act is designed to complement and integrate with the EU General Data Protection Regulation, this course will also cover the key points at which the Act aligns with GDPR (in relation to law enforcement) as well as the points at which it diverges.

The implementation of the new Data Protection Act may mandate some changes to the current structure and operation of law enforcement agencies, such as the requirement to appoint a Data Protection Officer, but is ultimately designed to help law enforcement agencies become safer and more secure. By taking this course with The Knowledge Academy, delegates can rest assured that our expert trainers will be able to guide them through the Act’s complexities so that their agencies can fully realise the benefits of enhanced data protection.
