GDPR Training

The GDPR training course has been designed to introduce the fundamental requirements needed of the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The data protection certification will give you an interactive guide to preparing, applying and maintaining an EU GDPR compliance programme. This technical qualification also enables you to achieve the role of data protection officer (DPO) as required in thousands of businesses under the General Data Protection Regulation.

Silicon Beach Training gives you the unique opportunity to take both Foundation & Practitioner courses which will run over 4 days. The globally trusted GDPR certifications consist of the EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation (one day) and Practitioner (three days) training courses.

What is the General Data Protection Regulation?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) is new legislation that delivers a data privacy law for the European Union. Organisations in Great Britain will also have to apply to the GDPR as this was confirmed by the UK Government before BREXIT was introduced.

Why should I take the GDPR certification?

With the increasing threats of data breaches from cyber-attacks, the EU GDPR aims to avoid the loss of personal data by enhancing data security for all individuals living in the European Union.

Organisations that are based in the EU and the UK have until the 25th May 2018 to comply with the new law or possibly face sizeable fines, so it's vital to be fully organised by taking the GDPR course.

Who should attend the GDPR course?

This data protection qualification has been intended for Information Security Professionals, Risk Managers, Compliance Officers and  IT security professionals. This courses can also be for anyone who would like to enter the field of data protection or holds a professional IT certification.
