We are pleased to announce that we are now offering two GDPR training courses at our training suite in Exeter.
The EU GDPR will be enforced from 25 May 2018, and it is the culmination of years of work by the EU to reform Data Protection regulation into a Union-wide framework instead of a patchwork of country-specific legislations. As a result AME offer courses two courses that are designed to help businesses
understand the new law. We offer a 1 day course that provides an introduction for those wishing to understand the laws and what steps are required to be compliant. Our 4 day course provides a detailed introduction to GDPR and a full overview on how to plan and implement a continuous compliance programme.
GDPR 1 DAY AWARENESS TRAINING
This 1-day GDPR Awareness course provides an introduction to the GDPR’s terminology and purpose. Candidates will learn how to appreciate the necessity of complying with the GDPR – ensuring that personal data is secure and that your organisation does not face a catastrophic fine of up to 20 million Euros or 4% of your annual global turnover. The multifaceted nature of the GDPR means that organisations will need to have their systems reviewed and enhanced – which will require a number of individuals with specialist hard-skills. Hence, this course offers an introduction to the GDPR and enables candidates to enhance their knowledge of what their role will be in maintaining a programme of compliance.
Coming into effect on May 25th 2018, the GDPR will unify data protection methods across the European Union – ensuring that organisations that process, store, or monitor data take preventative steps to safeguard data belonging to EU citizens. The ever-growing threat of data breaches and cyber attacks, means that organisations must develop stringent systems-based operations, to ensure the safety of personal data – hence this course will educate candidates of the fundamental principles, articles, and regulations that underpin the GDPR as legislation.
The regulation places citizens at the forefront of data processing and in control of their own data with new rights. Consequently, the regulation will have large repercussions for organisations involved in marketing, cloud optimisation, and data storage – as they must obtain new consent from clients for data collection, set up legal contracts, and abolish their utilisation of unstable storage mechanisms. Therefore, this GDPR awareness course will help explain the requirements of the GDPR for their organisation and learn how the GDPR will affect them.

GDPR FOUNDATION AND PRACTITIONER TRAINING
This EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 4-day training course provides a detailed introduction to the EU GDPR, and a full overview regarding how to plan and implement a continuous compliance programme. It enables delegates to fulfil the knowledge requirements of a Data Protection Officer (DPO) – a position that will become a legal requirement in EU Organisations with a central data storage and processing function, in May 2018. The Knowledge Academy’s GDPR certification consists of the
EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation (two days) and Practitioner (two days) training courses.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) is a new directive that will provide a singular data protection law for the European Union – creating a reference and basis upon which security platforms can be initiated, to prevent the loss of personally identifiable information as a consequence of security breaches. The GDPR will enforce stringent data protection requirements for all organisations that possess or process personally identifiable information, and/or monitor the behaviour of EU citizens. Noncompliance with the new directive will result in organisations facing substantial and financially catastrophic fines of up to 4% of their global turnover or €20 million, depending on the severity of the breach and the deemed “tier” of the offence.
This four day comprehensive certified foundation – practitioner course, with independent APMG exam, will provide a practical guide to planning, implementing and maintaining compliance with the new General data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Regulations.
