This 2-day EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR’s constituents, 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 will come into effect May 25th 2018 and will require organisations that process, monitor, and store data belonging to EU citizens, to transform 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 within an organisation 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 malicious proliferation of cyber-attacks; in addition to developing their awareness of non-compliance fines: 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.
This course is designed for individuals looking to elevate their knowledge of the impending GDPR. Individuals that would benefit from undertaking this course include:
Information Security Professionals
Data Protection Officers
IT Security Professionals
There are no pre-requisites for this course – it is open to all individuals interested in enhancing their knowledge of the GDPR
The GDPR Foundation exam tests a candidate's knowledge of the principles of GDPR, subject rights, and the underpinning background of the GDPR. The exam consists of:
45 Multiple Choice Questions
A 65% Pass Mark required to gain the GDPR certification
