Every advanced country has its own data protection laws. The General Data Protection Regulations, or GDPR, unified all of the former EU country’s data protection laws under a single set of regulations; whilst also extending the control individuals have over their own personal data.

 The Government has confirmed that Brexit will not affect the commencement of the GDPR.

The course is designed for anyone who makes decisions about collecting, storing, and using people’s personal data, and will help you manage staff whose job it is to handle data on a day to day basis.

This GDPR Training for Management course provides an in-depth understanding of the regulations, covering the core principles, what you need to do to comply with them, and what rights it guarantees for individuals


If you do not make decisions about collecting or storing data head over to our GDPR Essentials Training.

GDPR Training for Management Course Contents

1. What is the GDPR?


This introductory section will explore the reasons we need data protection, give a brief overview of the general principles and define some of the terms used throughout the General Data Protection Regulations.

2. Processing Data


This section will cover the first five principles of the GDPR, which are all to do with processing data. This concerns collecting, using and keeping people’s personal data – as well as making sure that it’s accurate, up-to-date and deleted when no longer needed.

3. Security


This section is about keeping people’s personal data secure. Here we’ll cover one of the new features of the GDPR – “Privacy by Design” – which requires that all systems are designed with data security, and the principles of the GDPR, in mind.

4. Accountability


Another new feature of the GDPR is its Accountability principle. Who is accountable, for what, and what the punishment is for non-compliance, have all been updated and we’ll explore that in this section.

5. Individual’s Rights


The GDPR explicitly sets out the rights afforded to individuals, regarding the use of their personal data. We’ll take a look at these in detail in this section.
