IT Governance launches news series of Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation training courses in Manchester, UK

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, September 15, 2016 / -- The leading expert in cyber security and data protection, IT Governance, is pleased to launch a new series of Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation and Practitioner training courses in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Alan Calder, founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “We’re pleased to announce the launch of our new series of Certified GDPR Foundation and Practitioner training courses in Manchester. As we’re getting closer to the deadline to meet the requirements of the GDPR, organisations need to understand that compliance with the GPDR can’t be avoided. To meet these needs, we’ve developed two GDPR training courses, Foundation and Practitioner, both accredited by IBITGQ.”

The Foundation training course is designed to equip delegates with a basic understanding of the Regulation and the requirements to achieve compliance. The first GDPR Foundation course in the Manchester series will take place on 15 December 2016.

Delegates interested in fulfilling the role of a data protection officer can attend IT Governance’s Practitioner training course. The course covers the Regulation in depth and includes the implementation requirements, the necessary policies and procedures, and the elements of effective data security management. The first four-day course in Manchester will take place from 4-7 April 2017.

IT Governance’s Certified General Data Protection Regulation training courses are built on extensive practical experience gained by implementing hundreds of information security management systems worldwide, and is delivered by an experienced data protection consultant.

Individuals interested in attending both the Foundation and the Practitioner training courses can benefit from a 15% discount on the total price by booking a place on the combined GDPR course.

Delegates attending the courses will sit a 60-minute exam. Delegates who pass the exam will be awarded the ISO 17024-accredited EU GDPR Foundation (EU GDPR F) or EU GDPR Practitioner (EU GDPR P) qualification by IBITGQ.
