European Union GDPR Overview training

As of 25th May 2018, under the EU GDPR, organisations now need to ensure that they comply with the GDPR, or face the potential of punitive fines of up to 4% of global annual turnover.

This course covers all the essentials, such as the GDPR principles, the rights of Data Subjects, and the steps you need to take in order to comply with the GDPR. It’s trained by experts, not only in the GDPR, but in the delivery of training that’s engaging and clear.

Book now on our GDPR Overview course and get one more thing ticked off in your journey toward compliance.

This is the best IT-related course I have completed. Unlike previous courses, this one focussed on fully understanding databases and their construction. Getting the basics right, rather than simply glossing over essential concepts and focussing on software provided the tools to take this forward in a positive way.
