This course has now taken place.

The UK is among the most fined nations in Europe for data protection breaches, with data breach penalties increasing from £2m in 2015 to £3.2m in 2016. With GDPR coming into force in May 2018 and organisations becoming increasingly dependent on data, it is now more crucial than ever for organisations to ensure compliance with the highest standards of data protection.

From the government’s commitment to public sector organisations sharing data with each other, to avoiding data breaches, it is essential for organisations to have effective information governance procedures and strategies in place.

Delegates on this Understanding Data Protection & GDPR course will gain a clear understanding of the GDPR reforms to data protection, learn the tools to effectively identify and manage risk, avoid punitive fines, and leave with the confidence and knowledge to comply with the Data Protection Act and GDPR.
