ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, February 28, 2017 / -- IT Governance, the leading provider of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training courses and consultancy, has trained over 500 delegates on the GDPR through its Certified GDPR Foundation and Practitioner training courses.

Alan Calder, the founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “Since May last year, when the GDPR was entered into force, our Foundation and Practitioner GDPR training courses have helped over 500 professionals get a comprehensive understanding of the Regulation and gain the practical skills to achieve compliance with the GDPR.

“The GDPR requirements mean there is considerable work to be done assessing risks and implementing new controls before it is enforced. Organisations should take action now to prepare for this and to conduct data flow audits, produce policies and procedures, appoint a data protection officer and meet the Regulation’s other requirements,” said Alan Calder.

The Certified EU GDPR Foundation training course is designed to provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the Regulation. The GDPR Practitioner training course covers the Regulation in greater depth, including implementation requirements, the necessary policies and procedures, and effective data security management, and is a vital qualification for the role of DPO. 

Delegates wishing to attend both courses can benefit from a 15% discount by booking a place on the Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Foundation and Practitioner Combination Course.

IT Governance supports professional development. Once the course is completed, delegates take the EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation (EU GDPR F) and Practitioner (EU GDPR P) examinations, which are 60 and 90-minute multiple-choice exams.

The ISO 17024-accredited certification proves that the delegate has achieved an in-depth understanding of the EU GDPR and its compliance requirements. IT Governance is an approved provider of IBITGQ courses and exams are accredited by gasq, an ISO/IEC 17024 certification body.
