An Introduction to GDPR Training

Tuesday 14th November Brussels

We have trained over 100 organizations including:

How much do you know about Europe’s biggest overhaul of data protection law for a generation?

You would have to have been hiding under a rock for the past two years not to have heard about the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) or at the very least, the value of its penalties. But, what do you know about how it applies to you and your organisation?

The GDPR is set to bring in sweeping changes in the way European businesses, and those that interact with European residents collect, process and store personal data.

In this one-day course, we seek to educate anyone with a basic understanding of personal data processing systems about the incoming regulation. Free of legal jargon, you will complete the course knowing what the GDPR means to you, where to start with your preparations and crucially, how to respond to a breach.


Is your organisation prepared for GDPR?

  • Are you able to comply with GDPR breach notification requirements?
  • Are you able to measure your organisations breach readiness?

Since 1998, the UK’s Data Protection Act has been looking after your personal data, your digital identity but as of May 2018, it will be consigned to the scrap heap due to the introduction of the GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation – from Europe; and trust us, this new legislation is far more comprehensive than our old Act and is something not to be dismissed lightly.

The GDPR started its journey way back in January 2012 with the European Commission. Over two years, the regulation was handed around between the Council, the European Commission and the European Parliament, finally emerging as a directive in 2016. The GDPR, all 260-plus pages, is finally implemented in May 2018 and whilst it’s not on everyone’s reading list, its key fundamentals should be part of everyone’s knowledge. Yes, it is a set of terms and conditions when it comes to handling personal data, and that’s the key reason why the majority of us in the business world need to know and understand the basic requirements of the GDPR.

This course will enable you to prepare a defined and managed approach to GDPR. This is not a technical course therefore there are no prerequisites.

This training is available as a one day public course or internal workshop. 

Delegates will learn and understand:

  • The history of the GDPRs inception and creation.
  • Who the GDPR applies to, both inside and outside the borders of the EU. 

  • Who is accountable and what steps they need to take to prepare. 

  • What is personal data and what is classified as special categories of personal data.

  • What defines a data controller and a processor.

  • What is a breach and how to respond.

  • Who is the data protection officer and which types of organisations must appoint one.

  • The price of non-conformance.

  • How to work with European data and international partners.
