IT Governance launches online Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation training course


IT Governance, the leading expert in cyber security and data protection, has launched a series of online Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation training courses, designed to help organisations achieve compliance and avoid hefty fines once the Regulation comes into force on 25 May 2018.
The online training course is delivered live and online, and provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR. The course covers the essential GDPR background and terminology, data subjects and their rights, marketing requirements and dealing with subject access requests, international data transfers and the implementation path to the GDPR compliance.
Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, says: “By providing an online introductory course to the GDPR, we are able to offer delegates the knowledge and practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for organisations handling European residents’ personal data worldwide.”  
The series starting on 28 June 2016 is delivered by one of IT Governance’s experienced data protection consultants. The training session is developed on the foundations of IT Governance’s extensive practical experience gained advising on compliance with data privacy laws and related information security standards such as ISO 27001.
The course also supports professional development. Upon completing the course, delegates will sit a 60-minute multiple-choice exam, accredited by the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ). Passing the examination proves that the participant has obtained a solid understanding of the EU GDPR.
Individuals who want to fulfil the role of DPO and get in-depth knowledge of the GDPR and the technical aspects of data protection can attend the four-day online Certified EU GDPR Practitioner training course starting on 25 October 2016.
Delegates wishing to attend both the online Certified EU GDPR Foundation and Practitioner training courses can save 15% on the total price by booking a place on the combined GDPR course.
