GDPR (The European Union General Data Protection Regulation) seminar

GDPR (The European Union General Data Protection Regulation) seminar

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) is new legislation that ensures a single, harmonised data privacy law within the European Union. With the increasing risk of data breaches from cyber-attacks and hacking, the EU GDPR aims to prevent the loss of personal data by improving data security for all individuals living in EU member states. Organisations have until 25th May 2018 to comply or potentially face fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million.

The one-day EU General Data Protection Regulation 'classroom' course: provides a comprehensive introduction to the EU GDPR, and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements and how to implement the regulation within the organisation.

During the course, we will go thru the implementation path to ensure EU GDPR compliance, and how you as an IT and data consultant can help companies avoid additional work, and loss of reputation resulting from data breaches. Besides implementation structures, we will also focus on cyber resilience, data protection, and cybersecurity issues that are mandatory within the law.


During the seminar, we will review current IT and data issues regarding GDPR implementation and how you can help companies to develop an IT and data security strategy. The seminar will also be conducted as a GDPR workshop with breakout sessions to identify the significant effects of GDPR and recognise several key areas of action, including a roadmap & framework.
