Provided by the Knowledge Academy, this two-day EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course provides candidates with an understanding of how to implement a full GDPR compliance programme - ensuring that business systems are adequately stringent and secure.
This comprehensive GDPR practitioner course enables candidates to develop their knowledge of the impending alterations to european data protection laws, whilst learning how to become an adept GDPR data protection officer (DPO), controller, processor, or advisor.
The GDPR will come into effect 25 May 2018. It has been meticulously designed to enhance the security of personally identifiable information (PII) belonging to EU citizens, in an age of ever-developing technology and cyber-attack sophistication.
Hence, individuals are required to develop an extensive appreciation for the constituents of a continuous compliance programme, in order to initiate the overhaul of operational systems in organisations with a central data processing, storage, or monitoring function.
Compliance with the stringent, prescriptive, but necessary GDPR is imperative for the continuation of a business, in its entirety, as fines for non-compliance can reach a staggering €20 million fine or 4% of the previous year’s global turnover.
The prescriptive GDPR will unify data protection laws and mechanisms across the european union, to ensure the safety of personal data belonging to EU citizens.
Why this course is important
This GDPR practitioner course delineates the crucial steps that must be taken to ameliorate processing and storage systems, from:
- Data protection impact assessments (DPIAs), to
- Optimising cloud storage, to
- Enhancing the efficiency of breach reporting operations
Individuals undertaking this course will be able to conduct a full appraisal of systems and data protection mechanisms - enabling them to identify areas for improvements within their business.
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. Consequently, individuals performing the role of the DPO must be versatile, have a comprehensive data protection awareness, have careful consideration for the law, and be able to communicate with supervisory authorities and data subjects simultaneously.
This GDPR practitioner course enables candidates that are responsible for data protection to develop their versatile skill-set for this new adaptable and multifaceted role.

This GDPR practitioner course would be beneficial for:
