GDPR Fast-track Workshop

GDPR Fast-track Workshop



This 2-day workshop is designed to fast-track delegates through the GDPR via a comprehensive syllabus that includes 18 modules with Q&A sessions and group exercises to consolidate knowledge and share a practical approach to delivering on your legal obligations under the GDPR. The focus is on practical application of the material covered.
Delegates will be taken through practical exercises to reinforce course material and have access to an online compliance platform on which many of the exercises will be undertaken.
For UK delivery there are two important aspects that are considered – adoption of much of the GDPR by the DPA (2018) and the implications of Brexit.
Workshop material is fully cross-referenced online with the GDPR down to clause level with clickable links taking delegates directly to the relevant recital or article.
