Course Description

Effective GDPR Compliance Begins with Professional Training

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in May 2018. One of the requirements of the GDPR is the appointment of knowledgeable data protection officers (DPO’s). The job of a DPO includes monitoring compliance, managing internal data protection activities, training data processing staff, conducting internal audits and more. There is a lot to learn but there is also a lot of opportunity for privacy professionals who are certified!
