Training course outline

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the DPA 2018 and covers the similarities and differences between the DPA 2018 and the GDPR.

The UK invoked Article 50 on 29 March 2017, meaning the UK is scheduled to leave the EU. As the GDPR is a European regulation, many are questioning what this means in relation to Brexit.

This course covers the DPA 2018 and the GDPR; and how the Brexit draft regulations, or a no deal Brexit, will affect data protection in your organisation.

“The ITG DPA 2018 online training course provides a comprehensive examination of the new UK’s 2018 Data Protection Act and how it differs from the GDPR. Combining a range of different learning materials, including a pre-learner course, ITG has rendered the complex DPA 2018 material accessible to all.”

- Alex, GDPR Consultant
