IT Governance launches its first GDPR classroom training course in Spain

IT Governance, the global cybersecurity experts.

DUBLIN, IRELAND, November 7, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- IT Governance, the leading provider of information security and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) expertise, is holding its first certified GDPR classroom training course in Spain – in Madrid on 28 November 2017 and in Barcelona on 30 November 2017.

Delivered by IT Governance’s experts in data protection and the GDPR, this classroom training course is a great opportunity to get the practical skills required to initiate a GDPR compliance project.

In just one day you will learn about the key concepts of the GDPR, the new rights of data subjects, business obligations, developing policies and procedures, the data protection officer (DPO) role and responsibilities, international data transfers outside the European Union, and much more.

In the final hour of the course, attendees will take a multiple-choice exam. Those who pass the exam will get an international certificate of attendance that is evidence of their GDPR understanding and knowledge.
The course also supports continued professional development programmes by qualifying for seven CPD/CPE credits.

GDPR compliance is crucial

The GDPR represents the most significant change to data protection legislation in the last 20 years at a European and global level. Although it came into force on 25 May 2016, the GDPR will take effect exactly two years later on 25 May 2018.

Every organisation that processes EU residents’ personal data must comply with the Regulation. Ignoring the GDPR or getting compliance wrong could incur fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is greater.

To book your place on the Madrid or Barcelona certified GDPR classroom training course, please visit our website, email servicecentre@itgovernance.eu or call 00 800 48 484 484.
