GDPR High-level introduction with Q&A

What our course and workshops provide.

A comprehensive one-day course has been designed to provide attendees with a clear understanding of the new law and the practical expectations required of companies and staff who process personal data under the new EU GDPR.

Attendees will also learn how to prepare their organisation for the changes and how to facilitate, accommodate and implement the new requirements. We show you how to embed the concept of best practice in day to day behaviours and how to communicate that to others.

Who is the Data Protection Officer in your company?

Our course will explain the new rules regarding the legal basis for processing, consent, privacy notices, control of personal data, mandatory breach reporting, complaints and penalties as well as practical guidance on what organisations can do to remain compliant.
