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.
