Provided by the Knowledge Academy this two-day EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR’s constituents, context terminology, and compliance mechanisms.
Candidates will learn how to plan a continuous and longitudinal compliance programme, whilst appreciating the multifaceted role of a data protection officer (DPO), data controller, and data processor under the GDPR.
What is GDPR?
The GDPR will come into effect 25 May 2018. It will require organisations that process, monitor and store data belonging to EU citizens to transform their marketing, system, and processing methods drastically to ensure the safety of data against cyber-attacks and breaches.
Hence, this course delineates the alterations required within an organisation in order to make their systems more functional and fully compliant.
What you need to know
Candidates will learn to appreciate the necessity of the GDPR as a response to the development of technology and the malicious proliferation of cyber attacks.
In addition, they will develop their awareness of non-compliance fines: 4% of the previous year’s global turnover, or €20 million depending on the severity of the breach and the deemed offence “tier”.
The implementation of the prescriptive GDPR is an intentional step towards a much-needed unified data protection law across the European Union. The GDPR will elevate trust of citizens when interacting with online services, so this course has a number of benefits for marketing and security-based organisations, as individuals will learn how to legally and optimally interact with their users.
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. Therefore, it is imperative that individuals responsible for data protection, storage, and processing, develop a comprehensive appreciation for the meticulous details of the impending GDPR - which can be obtained by undertaking this introductory, but extensive GDPR foundation course.
