This 2-day General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Foundation course provides a complete introduction to the EU GDPR and an overview of the key implementation and compliance activities.
The 2-day General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Practitioner course enables delegates to fulfil the role of data protection officer (DPO) under the EU GDPR, and covers the Regulation in depth. This includes implementation requirements and the necessary policies and processes, in addition to acquiring knowledge concerning important elements of effective data security management. This GDPR Practitioner course covers the following topics:
This GDPR Foundation and Practitioner course is intended for:
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.
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.
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:

The trainer Kara was amazing, very knowledgeable and took the time to explain things well
Was hoping to attend a "live" version of this course but obviously due to the restrictions went for the virtual course instead. Extremely impressed with how well this was delivered. Franklin was an engaging and entertaining instructor and despite my concerns being virtual did not stop class participation.
