If you own or work for a business or an organisation holding data it is imperative that you have a good knowledge and understanding of the new law, reviewed your existing policies and procedures and made the appropriate changes prior to this date.

This one-day course will foster your knowledge and understanding of the GDPR, including the guidelines issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), help you understand the jargon of the law and enable you to comply/advise clients on compliance with the GDPR requirements.

This course is suitable for HR companies, employers and businesses collecting and handling personal data. The course is also relevant for solicitors or legal practitioners that need to advise their clients on GDPR compliance.
