Are You Ready For The General Data Protection Regulations (1 Day)

Course Description

Are you and your organisation ready for the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which are coming into effect in May 2018?

This in-depth, especially designed by Chamber Train, course will equip you through hands-on learning, with all the knowledge you will need to understand, plan and implement a continuous GDPR compliance programme.

You will understand how commercial data security measures might be insufficient for the implementation of GDPR and you will be ready to apply whatever changes your organisation may need to do to remain compliant with the new general data protection regulations.
