Data Protection Officer Training Course

There is a minefield of information out there about GDPR, some quite daunting.

With the headline of a maximum £17m fine, or 4% of turnover (whichever is greater) when the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in May 2018 there is good reason to be concerned.

At GDPR Training Ltd we understand your concerns and we are here to help.

The UK regulatory body, the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) in their guide "Preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 12 steps to take now" identify key points as being awareness and appointing a DPO.

Just think of the reputational damage to your business and the cost of rectification could outweigh any proportionate fine.

Your organisation or school may need a DPO, there are an estimated 75,000 DPO's needed and there is currently a huge shortage...get prepared and get ahead.

Our 3 day Data Protection Officer Training is ideal for those who are looking to skill up and take on this key role to ensure your organisation complies with data protection and privacy obligations under GDPR.
