Are You Complying with the Data Protection Regulations? (1 Day)

Course Description


Since May 25th organisations are now legally required to notify a personal data breach to the national data protection authority and are obligated to inform affected, and potentially affected, individuals where the breach is likely to result in a high risk for the rights and freedoms of those individuals.

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.
