Image for GDPR DPO Training for Data Protection Officers.

Have you been nominated as your company’s Data Protection Officer or been given responsibilities to manage data protection across the organisation?

Do you feel like you need DPO training to help comply with UK GDPR and the data protection legislation?

If so, this course is for you.

We will help you understand the core obligations, your responsibilities, and the responsibilities for your organisation and your colleagues.

After all, under the data protection law, the “Data Controller” (the organisation) is accountable for data protection, not just you.

Data protection laws in the UK, including GDPR, Data Protection Act and PECR, can seem daunting and complex.

Our training workshops are provided by expert practitioners who don’t just talk about the legal terms.

We focus on the practical steps that you can take, for your company to comply with the data protection law.

This GDPR training discusses the controls and documentation that your business legally needs to implement, and what you need to do to help make that happen, whether you have responsibilities as a Data Protection Officer, Data Protection Leader, Data Protection Champion, Data Protection Manager or other related title.

We provide information and materials that you can take back to your business to help improve the levels of compliance.

This Data Protection Officer training course is provided by an experienced DPO, who has supported and advised many organisations.

You will be benefiting from the trainers real work experience, having helped organisations through many challenges and opportunities.

The course is an interactive workshop, to help to fit the controls into your business, so we can discuss solutions for the challenges that you may have encountered already.

The training is provided as face-to-face classes in London, online classes via Teams, or a bespoke version of the course can be presented in-house to your key business stakeholders.
