Data Protection (GDPR) Workshop

½ Day - 3 hours

Data Protection training is essential given the new (GDPR) legislation requirement to train all staff. You don’t want to switch your staff off though, just because this is about yet more compliance in an already complicated world. Instead, our GDPR workshops offer delegates an opportunity to learn and engage in lively discussions whilst exploring what the law says, what needs to be done and what the repercussions might be if data is improperly handled.

No organisation wants to be threatened with multi million pound fines due to data breaches. No organisation wants to be torn apart in the press as the world has seen with Facebook and YouTube for their seeming disregard for protecting the data of subscribers/clients or members. While it is near impossible to remove all possible data breaches and unlawful handling, what we can do is learn about the legislation and understand the safeguards we can all put in place to minimise the risks.

Our expert trainers can deliver a workshop on a challenging topic both in plain English and in a way that will make it easy for delegates to relate to the issues and challenges of their own workplace.

We will work with you to create a workshop that is a perfect fit for your organisation, however, we have provided two example course outlines below, one for employees and one for managers.
