Course Overview


On May 2018 the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) becomes enforceable, carrying fines of up to 4% of global annual turnover or €20 million, whichever is greater. In response to this on August 7th 2017 the UK’s Department for Digital, Culture Media & Sport announced its statement of intent for the Data Protection Bill (DPB) which will comply with the GDPR in full, thus ensuring that Brexit will have no effect on data privacy and responsibility.

This course aims to discuss both the GDPR and DPB within the context of what it means to your business. We will offer clear guidance and step by step actions of what is necessary to comply with the GDPR, while minimising impact on the day to day operations of your organisation.

Developed in collaboration with data privacy consultants and university academics, the course is designed to inform of the regulations and the potential pitfalls, in an engaging, dynamic and interactive learning environment. We utilise the Socrative (voting platform) and other interactive technologies to engage with you throughout the course. GDPR compliance is not a “one size fits all” process, so break out and group discussion sessions are included to ensure that the lessons are placed in a meaningful context of your individual business needs

The course is delivered by industry practitioners well versed in helping companies become GDPR, ISO 27001 and cyber essentials compliant. We cover all the key elements of the GDPR regulation to ensure you fully understand the steps and approaches your company needs to become GDPR compliant. We focus on providing practical approaches which can be easily implemented.
