Overview

An Introduction to the GDPR

Our EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training courses provide a detailed introduction to the EU GDPR and a full overview regarding how to plan and implement a continuous programme of compliance.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new directive that will provide 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 as a consequence of security breaches. The GDPR will enforce stringent data protection requirements for all organisations that possess or process personally identifiable information, and/or monitor the behaviour of EU citizens. Noncompliance with the new directive will result 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 EU Directive 95/46/EC, to ensure 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. Coming into effect on May 25th 2018, the directive is prescriptive and will help to 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 Government has confirmed that the GDPR will come into effect regardless of the Brexit referendum result, hence organisations must ensure that they are fully compliant prior to the regulation’s instigation. Therefore, it is imperative that individuals involved in, and responsible for, data protection and processing, have a comprehensive appreciation for the meticulous details of the new regulation - obtained through undertaking GDPR courses.


GDPR Course Structure

The Knowledge Academy provides 4 different GDPR courses, allowing you to chose the most relevant course for your professional needs in order to comprehensively enhance your knowledge of the impending regulation:  

GDPR Foundation and Practitioner

This 4-day course covers an extensive range of data protection tools in order to comply with the GDPR. Our highly engaging instructors and step-by-step compliance guidelines enable candidates to gain a full appreciation for the GDPR, whilst learning the additional benefits of being compliant, such as client trust. This combined GDPR certification enables you to learn how to plan, implement, and maintain a compliance programme.

GDPR Foundation

This 2-day GDPR training course encourages candidates to appreciate how the GDPR will affect their organisation’s data processing and storage operations. Candidates will learn the consequences of non-compliance and of the new rights that EU citizens will have under the GDPR, in addition to the alteration protocol when dealing with subject access requests. This course is a prerequisite for the Practitioner course.

GDPR Practitioner

This extensive course will encourage candidates to develop an understanding of the steps they need to take in order to comply with the GDPR. The fundamental requirements expected of a DPO will be covered within this course including how to identify a data privacy breach, assessing the impact of a breach, and how to inform the Supervisory Authority in the event of a data breach within 72 hours of identification. The course is highly engaging and involves a number of proactive exercises so that the candidate can return to business as a competent data protection officer and initiate a compliance programme.

GDPR Awareness

This 1-day course delineates the constituents of the GDPR, the key principles, essential GDPR terminology, the legal articles and recitals, and the underlying basis for the initiation of the GDPR.


The Role of a Data Protection Officer (DPO)

Our GDPR courses enable candidates to fulfil the knowledge requirements of a Data Protection Officer (DPO) – a position that will become a legal requirement in EU organisations with a central data storage and processing function, in May 2018.

This EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training courses will guide you through the actions and responsibilities of a Data Protection Officer so you can be fully prepared for the new obligations expected within the newly defined role. The 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)
