Introduction to Data Protection and GDPR

Course Overview

Data protection is a key duty of all organisations, public and private, which handle personal data and personal sensitive data. As well as the legal and regulatory impact of a serious data protection incident, the harm to trust, brand and reputation can be significant.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on Friday, 25th May 2018 thereby creating significant new obligations, as well as massively increased financial penalties – up to €20m or 4% of global turnover.

This one-day online course will give you a clear understanding of your organisation’s main data protection obligations and the GDPR, and how to ensure your organisation’s compliance.  It is aimed at staff who have responsibility for managing data and have a critical role in ensuring the organisation is compliant in its obligations under the GDPR but who do not necessarily work in the role of Data Protection Officer (DPO).
