Learn how the European Union’s new data protection law will affect your organisation.

  • About the GDPR
    The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a single, harmonised data privacy law for the European Union. As the risk of data breaches from cyber attack continues to increase, the GDPR aims to prevent the loss and misuse of personal data by improving data security for all residents of EU member states – regardless of where their data is processed.

  • GDPR compliance timeline
    Organizations have until May 2018 to comply with the new law, or potentially face fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million (US$21.2 million) – whichever is greater.

  • Huge demand for GDPR experts
    With less than two years to overhaul their data protection and information security regimes, companies all over the world are crying out for GDPR experts to help them comply with the new law.

    This course lays the foundations of your career as a GDPR expert.

Benefits of the GDPR Foundation distance learning course

  • Comprehensive
    This distance learning course is a modular recording of our popular one-day EU GDPR Foundation classroom course, which provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR, and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for organizations of any size.

    Buyers receive a complimentary e-book copy of EU GDPR & EU-US Privacy Shield - A Pocket Guide when they buy this course, ensuring they have long-term access to essential GDPR reference materials.

  • Expert
    Delivered by an experienced data protection consultant, this recorded training session is built on the foundations of our extensive practical experience advising hundreds of global organizations on compliance with data privacy laws and related information security standards such as ISO 27001.

  • Flexible
    Distance learning lets you learn in your own time, from the comfort of your own home or office. Stop and start the recording according to your schedule, repeat modules that you want to go over again, or skip parts that cover familiar topics. If you have a busy schedule and cannot commit to a whole day’s uninterrupted training, this is the solution for you.

    Moreover, because this is a recorded session you get none of the interruptions normally associated with a classroom course: No fellow delegates asking questions, no breaks for coffee or lunch, no exercises – just the undiluted core content, delivered in the most time-efficient manner.

    Bear in mind, however, that your learning experience should include studying the course materials, so you should allow yourself some extra time for background reading.

  • Cost-effective
    Because they are recorded WebEx sessions, distance learning courses offer considerable savings over classroom and Live Online courses, which both feature live interaction with a trainer.

This GDPR Foundation qualification is also the prerequisite for the GDPR Practitioner course.
