New Certified EU GDPR Foundation training to launch as classroom course this November

21/09/2017

IT Governance, the leading provider of EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance solutions, has announced the launch of classroom training for its popular Certified EU GDPR Foundation course. IT Governance also delivers GDPR training courses in Live Online and distance learning formats.
 
This one-day course provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR and the requirements to achieve compliance. It is aimed at board-level decision makers who want to understand how the GDPR will affect their organization, and managers involved in, or responsible for, GDPR compliance.
 
The certified GDPR training courses are the European market leader for GDPR training and accredited qualifications. IT Governance's GDPR training courses have been delivered in an increasing number of cities across the EU and UK to more than 2,000 attendees in the past 15 months.
 
The GDPR extends the data rights of EU individuals and will affect every US organization that provides services into the EU. The GDPR requires evidence of compliance through control measures and incident response planning. To avoid financial and reputational damage, organizations must comply with the GDPR even if they are not physically present in the EU. Organizations found to be in breach of the Regulation may face fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (about $21 million) – whichever is greater.
 
Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “Training is key to achieving best practice in data protection and information security. Organizations will need to have managers in place who understand the requirements of the GDPR.
 
“Our high-quality training courses have been designed to equip those at the forefront of data security with the specialist knowledge and skills to implement controls for the prevention of data breaches. We’re pleased to offer a choice of GDPR training formats to suit their needs and circumstances.”
 
The first course will take place on November 28, 2017 in Boston, MA and will be delivered by IT Governance GDPR expert William Gamble. Attendees who pass the included exam are awarded the ISO 17024-accredited EU GDPR Foundation (EU GDPR F) qualification by IBITGQ.
