Angela Scott takes a look at our General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training courses and how it can help businesses to work towards GDPR compliancy.
Angela provides us with information about the GDPR training courses we have to offer at AME, and how they can help businesses get a great understanding of what the regulations are about and how to avoid hefty fines.
With the new GDPR regulations going live in May you and your employees may be a little confused about your responsibilities regarding the data you hold. This could be customer/patient/employee data, amongst many other types.
To help you through the process AME are running two different types of GDPR courses. These are the four day GDPR Foundation – Practitioner Certification course for Data/Compliance officers who will be responsible for the organisations GDPR policies and procedures. There is also the one day GDPR awareness course for everyone else.
We have had such an overwhelming response to these courses that we are about to run our 3rd Foundation and Practitioner course where we have had 100% pass rate.
Foundation – Practitioner Course
Our ISO 17024-accredited GDPR Foundation and Practitioner training courses offer a structured learning path to equip
data protection and information security professionals, as well as individuals who lack data protection expertise and
experience, with the specialist knowledge and skills needed to deliver GDPR compliance and fulfil the role of data
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 role of a Data Protection Officer (DPO)
This EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training course will guide you through the actions and responsibilities of a Data Protection Officer so you can be fully prepared for the new obligations expected within the newly defined role. The newly qualified GDPR DPO can be a current staff member or a contractor; however, the role must be designated on the basis of professional qualities, and expert knowledge of data protection laws. DPOs must adhere to the GDPR requirements, as listed in Article 39:
• Inform and advise the controller or the processor and the employees who are processing personal data of their obligations pursuant to this regulation
• Monitor compliance with this regulation, including the assignment of responsibilities, awareness-raising, and training of staff involved in the processing operations, and the related audits
• Provide advice where requested with regard to the data protection impact assessment and monitor its performance pursuant to Article 35 and co-operate with the supervisory authority (the ICO)
• Act as the contact point for the supervisory authority on issues related to the processing of personal data.
The GDPR certification consists of the EU General Data Protection Regulation Foundation (two days) and Practitioner (two days) training courses. Exams are taken during the course.
One day awareness Course
This one-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.
As with all the high quality courses at AME, lunches and parking are also included.
