Overview

Learn how to meet the strict requirements of GDPR in just 3 days with accelerated GDPR training. On this General Data Protection Regulation [(EU) 2016/679] Practitioner course, you’ll study the regulation itself, including GDPR basics and risk management.

You'll also study GDPR's relationship to current data protection and privacy legislation in Europe and elsewhere and learn the multi-jurisdictional consequences for the collection, retention and processing of Personal Data.

This GDPR training includes the GDPR Practitioner exam, which you'll sit at the Firebrand Training Centre during your accelerated course.

Learn fast on an all-inclusive course

This accelerated course is 25% faster than traditional GDPR training. You'll be back in the office sooner, putting your new knowledge into practice. In three days, you'll cover the following topics:

  • Overview of legal systems and their interrelationships
  • 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.

Firebrand's GDPR training is designed for professionals with a practical need to understand and implement enterprise governance and business processes. This accelerated course is ideal for:
