This half day course will provide you with key information about the new General Data Protection Regulation, ensuring your organisation can comply with this important new set of laws.


On the 25 May 2018 we experienced the biggest change in data protection laws in twenty years with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Given the substantial impact and the role that data has in both our personal and professional lives, GDPR provides a new set of laws designed to ensure that the highest standards of data protection are at the heart of your operations. This course will cover the key areas of the new regulation and will give you a complete GDPR overview. It will help those involved with the handling of people’s information to be able to adopt these practises within their organisation.
