GDPR training of quality and depth

“The training we recently undertook with you on GDPR was brilliant, and thoroughly enjoyed by myself and colleagues. Keep up the good work – the training is fantastic.” – Guildford Borough Council

“You made it informative and engaging for everyone – the comment most people say is that they can’t believe you could make Data Protection so interesting! I do not believe there are many others out there who are doing this so well.” – The Kennel Club

“The delivery, content and no-nonsense approach was extremely well received and I cannot recommend The IT Service enough to any organisation wanting to address their own obligations. No scare-mongering or ‘tasters’ to try and extract more money, just a straightforward ‘This is what’s coming and this is what you need to do.’ First class” – British Fluid Power Association

Is GDPR certification worth anything?

In this article, I'd like to tackle the thorny issue of GDPR certification. Let's start by laying the bald facts on the table - there's no such thing as "official certification" for the GDPR. The Information Commissioner's Office haven't set out an official curriculum, paths to certification or accreditation programmes and nor have the European Commission. Nor, in my (long!) searches have I come across anything that I'd describe as [...]

Come to think of it, that also applies if you've not much knowledge of the DPA / GDPR but want to run your business ethically and legally. Not [...]
