Handling a GDPR Breach

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.

Chamber Train has been running training courses on what steps businesses need to take to ensure they remain compliant but, do you know what to do in the event of a data breach?

This practical one-day workshop will run through preventive actions to mitigate a breach, easy to follow steps if you do incur a breach and how to educate your workforce.
