EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation (GDPR) Training Course with Certification

GDPR (The European Union General Data Protection Regulation) seminar

The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a global effort to digitalise the “Single Market" initiatives and to strengthen the EU citizens' and the customers right to privacy and transparent disclosure of personal data and to avoid cyber and IT-Security breaches. The sweeping changes of GDPR implementation across Europe is an excellent opportunity for all companies to either streamline, refurbish or clean-up their critical IT, data, systems, technology as well as their business processes to create corporate digital value.

The excessive hype around GDPR and the enormous effort and expense to comply, signals the so-called right to privacy for individuals and companies.

The goal of the EU GDPR legislation is to ensure a single, harmonised data privacy law within the European Union. With the continued and increasing risk of data breaches from cyber-attacks and hacking, the EU GDPR aims to prevent the loss of personal data by improving data security for all individuals and customers in EU member states. Organisations have until 25th May 2018 to comply or potentially face fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million.

The one-day EU General Data Protection Regulation 'classroom' course: provides a comprehensive introduction and the practical understanding of the implementation implications, legal requirements and how to implement the regulation within the organisation.

During the course, we will go thru the implementation path to ensure EU GDPR compliance, and how you as an IT and data consultant can help companies avoid additional work, and loss of reputation resulting from data breaches. Besides implementation structures, we will also focus on cyber resilience, data protection, and cybersecurity issues that are mandatory within the law.


During the seminar, we will review current IT and data issues regarding GDPR implementation and how you can help companies to develop an IT and data security strategy. The seminar will be conducted as a GDPR workshop to identify the significant effects of GDPR and recognise several key areas of action, including a roadmap & framework. We have developed separate GDPR in.-house workshops as part of the training requirements of the legislation.


The GDPR FAS certification course will provide a complete overview to the EU GDPR, with a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for an organisation of any size. We will further focus on the practical application (Foundation) and the material substance of the GDPR articles on the GDPR execution including scope, approach, structure, data flows and mapping to ensure ongoing compliance.
