Attendees of this one-day classroom course will learn about the following:

The GDPR’s requirements apply to any organization that offers goods and services to, or monitors the behavior of, EU residents, irrespective of where the organization itself is located. This increased territorial scope took effect on May 25, 2018. After this date, U.S. organizations found in breach of the GDPR may face fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (about $24 million) – whichever is greater – and suffer reputational damage.

“Training is key to achieving best practice in data protection and information security,” said Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance.
“Our high-quality training courses have been designed to equip those at the forefront of data security with the knowledge and skills to implement controls for the prevention of data breaches. We’re pleased to offer a choice of GDPR training formats to suit their needs and circumstances.”
