Welcome to GDPR Professionals
As an Accredited Training provider, GDPR Professionals offers a range of training courses, advisory and consultancy services and software solutions to help organisations prepare for, and adapt to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We also help organisations meet the requirements of the UK Data Protection Act (DPA), which remains valid until the GDPR comes into effect on 25 May 2018.
Our courses and software ensure that your organisation is GDPR ready with a full compliance programme. Learn how to become an efficient and responsive Data Protection Officer (DPO) and how to design, implement, and maintain a GDPR compliance programme. And, enhance your awareness of data protection mechanisms and how to respond to cyber-security breaches.
Once GDPR comes into force from 25th May 2018, it will have a profound impact on how all organizations large, medium or small handle, manage and use customer data. Even if your website simply collects data on EU citizens, you must comply, or face fines up to €20 million or 4 percent of global annual turnover. The biggest challenge for companies is educating and training all teams, and not just the IT team. This means all the employees must understand the changes and regulations of GDPR, and how it applies to their daily work. GDPR aims to make the data usage more transparent for customers, which means that the customer services team will need to know what information they can publish, what they cannot and what constitutes noncompliance. A customer service representative will not have to ask the IT or data team each time they receive a request; instead companies should train individuals to be able to quickly and correctly answer questions.
GDPR extends beyond technology; it’s about people, processes, culture and law. Which means business knowledge and relationships, combined with our best-of-breed technologies, through leadership and associated support from GDPR Professionals, your business can bridge the GDPR gap, between where your business is presently and where it needs to be by May 2018 and beyond. Gain a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for organisations in our GDPR Foundation certificate course. Or, if you are looking for advance knowledge, you can take our GDPR Practitioner Certificate course to gain the knowledge and skills to implement an effective compliance programme and fulfil the role of the Data Protection Officer (DPO).
