GDPR Training

Summary

This course aims to discuss both the GDPR, DPA 2018, PECR and e-privacy directives within the context of what it means to your business. We will offer clear guidance and step by step actions of what is necessary to comply with the GDPR, while minimising impact on the day to day operations of your organisation, this includes information about how personal data should be handled, the requirements of the law, the process of registering with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO ) and what the term “Explicit consent” refers to.

This course will also cover E-Privacy, which details the stricter rules around marketing by electronic means, such as calling, texts and emails, the correct use of website cookies and introducing opt in methods to ensure customers are aware of what they are agreeing to. This reduces the chance of any unsolicited contact, keeping consent an integral part of the process.

Developed in collaboration with data privacy consultants, ISO27001 certified auditors, and university academics, the course is designed to inform of the regulations and the potential pitfalls, in an engaging, dynamic and interactive learning environment.

We utilise the Socrative (voting platform) and other interactive technologies to engage with you throughout the course. GDPR compliance is not a “one size fits all” process, so break out and group discussion sessions are included to ensure that the lessons are placed in a meaningful context of your individual business needs, while remaining educational, interesting and thought-provoking.

The course is delivered by industry practitioners well versed in helping companies become GDPR, ISO 27001, IASME Governance and cyber essentials compliant. We cover all the key elements of the GDPR regulation to ensure you fully understand the steps and approaches your company needs to become GDPR compliant. We focus on providing practical approaches which can be easily implemented.
