Key learning objectives for your accelerated Data Protection Officer training are:

  • Building your knowledge of personal data protection history in Europe
  • Developing an in-depth knowledge of approaches and concepts required in effective alignment with GDPR
  • Understanding the new requirements brought by the GDPR for EU and non-EU organisations and when to implement them
  • Learning the skills to support an organisation in implementation and assessment of these new requirements
  • Learning how you manage a team implementing the GDPR
  • Developing the knowledge and skills required to advise your organisation in managing personal data
  • Gaining analysis and decision making expertise in the context of personal data protection

With this accelerated data protection officer training, you'll prepare for and sit the official PECB Certified Data Protection Officer Exam. This is covered by your Certification Guarantee.

This accelerated Data Protection Officer course is ideal for:

  • Data Protection Officers or those involved in data protection and data privacy
  • Members of information security, incident management or business continuity teams
  • Expert advisors in personal data security
  • Technical or compliance experts preparing for a Data Protection Officer role

GDPR applies to organisations within the EU, as well as all those that handle personal data of EU citizens. If your organisation's core activities require regular and systematic monitoring of individuals on a large scale - like tracking an individual's behaviour on the internet - you must appoint a Data Protection Officer.

Cut the risk of prosecution in the event of a data breach - breaches of EU regulations by multinationals could result in fines of £20 million or 4% of worldwide gross turnover.
