IT Governance launches ISO 17024-certified EU General Data Protection Regulation training courses in the US

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, September 20, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ -- – IT Governance, the leading provider of cybersecurity and data protection expertise, is pleased to announce the launch of a new series Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation and Practitioner training courses in an interactive, Live Online format. These courses allow delegates from any location in the US to get a comprehensive and practical understanding of the Regulation.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into force in early 2018, imposing tough fines of up to 4% of worldwide annual turnover or €20 million (about $22 million) for non-compliance.

Alan Calder, the founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “US organizations that collect and handle EU residents’ data must comply with the EU GDPR. The launch of our new US certified training courses will allow delegates to gain the practical knowledge to take over the role of data protection officer (DPO) and help organizations achieve compliance with the EU GDPR.”

Delivered by an experienced data protection consultant, the Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Foundation and Practitioner training courses provide a comprehensive understanding of the requirements of the GDPR.

The one-day Certified EU General Data Protection Foundation training course provides delegates with a comprehensive introduction to the EU GDPR and practical understanding of the legal requirements that US organizations face under the GDPR when collecting and handling EU residents’ data.

The four-day Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Practitioner training course is designed to enable individuals to fulfil the role of a data protection officer (DPO). The course covers the GDPR compliance and implementation requirements in depth, as well as the policies and procedures required under the GPDR and the elements of effective data security management.

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

IT Governance supports professional development. Upon successfully completing the course and passing the exam, delegates will be awarded the EU GDPR Foundation (EU GDPR F) or EU GDPR Practitioner (EU GDPR P) qualification by IBITGQ.
