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 will become a legal requirement in EU Organisations with a central data storage and processing function, in May 2018. 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 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 Data Protection Act, 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 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 fully prepared for the new obligations expected within the newly defined role. 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
