APMG GDPR Awareness Foundation Level

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulation came into effect on May 25th 2018.

The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world that is vastly different from the time in which the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive was first established.

Although the key principles of data privacy still hold true to the previous directive, many changes have been proposed to the regulatory policies.

What training do we offer?

We offer a one-day GDPR UK awareness training course which incorporates participative sessions with scenario-based material to help candidates build understanding, stimulate interest and gain commitment to changing their organisation’s culture.
