You may need to implement changes to meet the GDPR regulation requirements or you may need to kick start your own awareness campaign. This course has been designed to address all audiences and prepare them for the next steps.

It is important that all organisations recognise the impact of the GDPR regulations on their business, and the steps required to achieve compliance and building a privacy awareness culture.

This course will explain the reasons for the new regulation, and the scope of its application, and identify the key participants in the processing of personal data and their responsibilities. Key principles are covered, and the risks and opportunities that arrive, complete with examples.

The certification from the APMG will show that organisations have taken the steps to educate their teams, and that a minimum level of knowledge is in place across the business.
