Overview

On this accelerated 4-day GDPR Foundation and Practitioner course you'll cover the regulation itself and learn how your organisation can meet the strict requirements of GDPR.

You'll study the General Data Protection Regulation [(EU) 2016/679] and how it supersedes current data protection and privacy legislation in Europe and elsewhere. You'll also understand multi-jurisdictional consequences for the collection, retention and processing of Personal Data.

This accelerated Foundation and Practitioner course is 25% faster than traditional GDPR training. In four days, your expert instructor will equip you with the practical know-how to apply GDPR in the real world, immersing you in hands-on individual and group exercises. During the course you'll cover key topics including:

  • Overview of legal systems and their interrelationships
  • Updating your privacy notices for websites, email, cookies, etc.
  • Privacy by design - exploring the specific purpose you process personal data for
  • Embedding GDPR within organisations under common law, civil law and other legal systems
  • Major required changes in corporate governance standards and processes
  • Subtle effects of ‚Big Data‚;
  • How to succeed under the self-reporting model of GDPR

You'll also discover what the integrated Personal Data environment would look like in your organisation. You'll then be able to develop, integrate and manage the changes required by GDPR in your organisation's governance, business and data processing.

This GDPR training also includes the GDPR Foundation and Practitioner exams, which you'll take on-site during your accelerated course.
