IT Governance, the global cybersecurity experts.

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- IT Governance, a leading provider of information security and data protection training and consultancy services, is delighted to announce the launch of a new and improved Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Practitioner Distance Learning Training Course. The course aims to teach individuals how to implement and achieve full compliance with the Regulation, and fulfill the data protection officer (DPO) role.

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “The GDPR creates new obligations for organizations collecting and handling the personal data of European residents. Along with these changes, the need for in-house, competent specialist knowledge increases.

“The new GDPR Practitioner Distance Learning Training course provides a thorough overview of the Regulation and an in-depth understanding of its requirements to allow individuals to successfully fulfill the role of DPO. The distance learning course is a cost- and time-effective alternative to the classroom or Live Online sessions.”

The course supports professional development, and those who pass the included exam are awarded the ISO 17024 certificated EU GDPR Practitioner (EU GDPR P) qualification from the International Board for IT Governance Qualifications (IBITGQ).

Our GDPR Practitioner course includes the GDPR privacy principles, the role of the DPO, legal requirements for a data protection impact assessment (DPIA), data flow mapping, common data security failures, and setting up a privacy compliance framework.

Participants will also learn about data subjects’ rights, consent rules, dealing with third parties, data in the Cloud, data breach reporting requirements, risk management, and the Regulation’s range of enforcement, regulatory, and compensatory powers.

Alternatively, individuals interested in a classroom course can attend the Certified EU GDPR Practitioner and Foundation and Practitioner Combination courses in Boston, Massachusetts. Live Online sessions also run at convenient times for people based in the US, UK or Europe.
