Effective GDPR compliance begins with professional training

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) brings substantial changes to the rules around personal data and its use. To ensure effective compliance by 25 May 2018, your organisation needs to have managers in place who understand the requirements of the GDPR and are well equipped to plan, implement and maintain a compliance programme. In some instances, there will also be a requirement for your organisation to appoint a suitably qualified and trained data protection officer (DPO), who will “directly report to the highest management level”.

Certified GDPR training with IT Governance

Our ISO 17024-accredited GDPR Foundation and Practitioner training courses offer a structured learning path to equip data protection and information security professionals, as well as individuals who lack data protection expertise and experience, with the specialist knowledge and skills needed to deliver GDPR compliance and fulfil the role of data protection officer.
