The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 or GDPR, came into force in May 2018. It will have a significant impact on the way organisations handle and store data. At over 88 pages long, the regulation consolidates and replaces the many data protection laws such as the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998.
This one day programme has been designed to provide an overview of the new Regulation an understanding of the responsibilities for individuals and organisations in the way that they obtain, store, use and delete data and the tools to do this. The new Regulation will bring specific legal obligations for those controlling or processing any personal data.
Who it is for:
The practical workshop is designed for anyone in an organisation who controls or processes data which includes the handling, storing, amending, obtaining, using, destroying, deleting and disclosing of data. The new legislation will place greater individual responsibility and this workshop has been written to provide clear guidance and an understanding of the new duties.
What we will cover:
- An overview of the GDPR Regulation; principles and considerations
- What’s new? Changes to the existing Data Protection legislation
- Responsibilities for both individuals as Processor and Controllers within their organisations
- Preparing for the new Legislation
- Key tips for ensuring compliance with the Regulation with the tools to help you achieve this
Each attendee will be provided with not only the required GDPR knowledge but also the practical templates and tools to support the implementation of GDPR in their workplace, which is included within the price.
Price per candidate is £200 including the full toolkit. For organisations with 6 or more staff wanting training then this price is negotiable.
“We attended the GDPR Course with ETS which was a great learning curve for us. Not only did it open our eyes to internal data which needs securing but answered questions regarding data we hold on behalf of clients. The documents provided by ETS will be a massive help and save us hours of time. A course we can’t recommend highly enough!”
“Really insightful and informative course. Had little knowledge or confidence on the new regulations but now feel confident we can put in place the key structures to ensure we are in alignment with the new regulations. Was great to hear from individuals who have put in place structures and were kind enough to offer resource to help with our own workplace. Great course- would recommend.”
“The course was invaluable for anyone working in Data Control and Processing. The trainer was exceptionally knowledgeable and delivered the course in a manner that suited all attendees. I would recommend this course for anyone wishing to identify and embed the new Regulations prior to implementation on 25th May 2018”
