About this course
Do you manage personal information of customers, clients, members of the public or employees, as a part of your job? Since the entry of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), if you work with any personal data, you have to follow strict procedures about how you should process, share, and protect it. Not adhering to the GDPR, even unknowingly, may have serious adverse effects for you and your organisation.
In this seminar, you will understand the exact principles of this new regulation even if you have no prior knowledge about it, and know how to implement these principles in your work.
Who is this course for:
Overall, this course will benefit everyone who work with data on a daily basis, but are not IT or legal experts, and do not have any prior knowledge of the GDPR.
This would include professionals in the European region, working in both the public and private sector.
Course methodology and highlights
- Simple explanation of the GDPR in an easy-to-understand language, without the use of high-level legal terms and jargons
