Description  

The GDPR Foundation training course outline

The EU GDPR has been in place for over a year and there is still a lack of preparedness for businesses in complying with the GDPR. According to GDPR+1 Year: Business Struggles with Data Privacy Regulations Increasing 79% of organisations are failing to meet the GDPR requirements.

This means businesses are leaving themselves open to face potential fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater. Training all staff in GDPR not only reduces the risk of a data breach it can also be used as evidence that appropriates steps have been put in place to prevent a breach. Article 39 of the GDPR outlines the need for training and staff awareness. All members of a compliance and risk team should at a minimum have foundation knowledge of GDPR and all staff will need e-learning.

The one-day Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation (GDPR) Training Course provides a comprehensive overview of the EU GDPR, and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for organisations of any size. The course is a stepping stone to the Certified EU GDPR Practitioner course.

"I thought the trainer was very informative and engaged really well with the rest of the group. She really interacted and was able to provide vital knowledge to the rest of the group. Thank you very much Clemence for the course."

- Cieran McAuley, Quality and Systems Manager, Safe Places for Children NI

Ceren, Executive Assistant attended this course in September, 2018: Our trainer was very helpful and listened to our individual scenarios and helped to guide us in the direction and where to turn to with further questions. It was a very good session and I feel confident in the foundation course.

Really good trainer! He kept us all engaged, made it interesting and we enjoyed it. Only thing that I would change was the length of the class. I think it would have been more beneficial to hold over two days as a lot to take in and I would have liked to have asked more questions. Other than that, really good and would recommend if looking to understand the basics or start a path into being a DPO

Very good overview of the subject but a lot to take in for one day to pass the Foundation. I do feel far more informed now though and that is helping my team understand the challenge and also helps me working on our GDPR programme.
