Description

The C-DPO Accelerated training course outline

More extensive in scope and application than the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), the EU GDPR extends the data rights of individuals, and requires organisations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data, and adopt appropriate technical and organisational measures. UK organisations have had to comply with the Regulation since 25 May 2018, or potentially face fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater.

Under the GDPR, many organisations are obliged to appoint a data protection officer to monitor data protection in the organisation. The two-day Certified Data Protection Officer Upgrade Training Course equips participants with the knowledge and operational skills to act as a DPO in the UK and ensure that GDPR compliance is effectively designed, implemented and maintained.

"Matt was incredible. His knowledge and enthusiasm was very clear and I really enjoyed the course."

- Becky Tucker, Director Audit & Risk, Sovereign

This was the culmination of the GDPR training path which started with Foundation and Practitioner courses. Throughout the instructors have been knowledgeable and highly engaging. It's not easy, you will need to put the work in, but very rewarding!
