Course Outline

Certified GDPR Practitioner

Duration: 4 days


The EU GDPR has been in place for over a year and there is still a lack of preparedness for businesses in complying with the GDPR. According to GDPR+1 Year: Business Struggles with Data Privacy Regulations Increasing 79% of organisations are failing to meet the GDPR requirements.

This means businesses are leaving themselves open to face potential fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater. Training all staff in GDPR not only reduces the risk of a data breach it can also be used as evidence that appropriates steps have been put in place to prevent a breach. Article 39 of the GDPR outlines the need for training and staff awareness. Anyone involved in the implementing and maintaining of the GDPR in your organisation should be have Practitioner level training and all staff will need e-learning.
