GDPR Foundation And Practitioner – Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR)

Overview

This 4-day EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course provides a detailed introduction to the EU GDPR, and a full overview regarding how to plan and implement a continuous compliance programme. It enables delegates to fulfil the knowledge requirements of a Data Protection Officer (DPO) – a position that is now a legal requirement in EU Organisations with a central data storage and processing function. The Knowledge Academy’s GDPR course consists of the EU GDPR Foundation (two days) and GDPR Practitioner (two days) training courses.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new directive that provides a singular data protection law for the European Union – creating a reference and basis upon which security platforms can be initiated, to prevent the loss of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) as a consequence of security breaches. The GDPR will enforce stringent data protection requirements for all organisations that possess or process PII, and/or monitor the behaviour of EU citizens. Noncompliance with the directive can and already has resulted in organisations facing substantial and financially catastrophic fines of up to 4% of their global turnover or €20 million, depending on the severity of the breach and the deemed “tier” of the offence.

The GDPR replaces the Data Protection Act and ensures that data protection laws are up to date with the “internet age” and are responsive to the ever-elevating threat of security breaches and cyber-attacks. The GPDR is prescriptive and is intended to help reassure European citizens that their personal data is safe – enhancing their confidence and interaction with online services. The regulation puts the security of EU citizens at the forefront of all processing activities – including granting individuals new legal rights concerning access and data erasure, and holding organisations accountable for any obligations that they fail to adhere to. The UK is also subject to a new version of the Data Protection Act, the DPA 2018, which complements the GDPR and features additional strictures for data processing in law enforcement. The Knowledge Academy also offers a course on Law Enforcement Processing under the new DPA. For both laws, it is imperative that individuals involved in, and responsible for, data protection and processing, have a comprehensive appreciation for the meticulous details of the GDPR – obtained through undertaking this all-inclusive GDPR Foundation and Practitioner course.
