The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is new legislation that provides a single, harmonised data privacy law for the European Union. The GDPR will replace the current Directive and will be directly applicable from 25 May 2018 in all Member States. The GDPR will affect every organisation that processes EU residents' personally identifiable information (PII).

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course also imposes obligations on companies to not only document and safeguard information on identifiable living persons but companies must also be able to evidence compliance
With the increasing risk of data breaches and cyber-attacks, the GDPR aims to prevent the loss of personal data by improving data security for all individuals living in EU member states.

 

What this course provides:

This is a comprehensive one-day course which will provide attendees with a clear understanding of the new law and the practical expectations required from companies and staff who process personal data under the new EU GDPR.

The course will assist attendees in understanding how to prepare their organisation for the changes and how to facilitate, accommodate and implement the new requirements before their enforcement in May 2018. It will also show how to embed the concept of best practice within day to day behaviours and how to communicate that to others.

The course will explain the new rules regarding the legal basis for processing, consent, privacy notices, control of personal data, mandatory breach reporting, complaints and penalties as well as practical guidance on what organisations can do to remain compliant.
