This EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course provides candidates with an understanding of how to implement a full GDPR compliance programme - ensuring that business systems are adequately stringent and secure. This comprehensive GDPR Practitioner course enables candidates to develop their knowledge of the impending alterations to European Data Protection laws, whilst learning how to become an adept GDPR Data Protection Officer (DPO), Controller, Processor, or advisor.

The GDPR will come into effect May 25th 2018 - it has been meticulously designed to enhance the security of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) belonging to EU citizens, in an age of ever-developing technology and cyber-attack sophistication. Hence, individuals are required to develop an extensive appreciation for the constituents of a continuous compliance programme, in order to initiate the overhaul of operational systems in organisations with a central data processing, storage, or monitoring function. Compliance with the stringent, prescriptive, but necessary GDPR is imperative for the continuation of a business, in its entirety, as fines for non-compliance can reach a staggering €20 million fine or 4% of the previous year’s global turnover.


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Practitioner course enables delegates to fulfil the role of DPO under the EU GDPR, and covers the Regulation in depth. This includes implementation requirements, the necessary policies and processes, in addition to acquiring knowledge concerning important elements of effective data security management. This GDPR Practitioner course covers the following topics:

  • Demonstrating compliance with the GDPR

  • Planning for compliance - privacy compliance frameworks and gap analysis

  • Legal requirements of the GDPR

  • Lawful Processing - rights and consent
