Get help with GDPR compliance – Newcastle – 28 March

Companies need to meet the GDPR Fundamentals standard.

The GDPR Fundamentals framework will give you confidence in your compliance and provide you with the appropriate evidence to present to suppliers and customers to help to maintain trust. Plus you can demonstrate to the Information Commissioners’ Office (ICO) that you are following an established process.

So what is the standard and why should you attend this course?

In essence, if you have a website, promote yourself through email marketing or employ staff you need to understand the implications of GDPR.

The GDPR is all about demonstrating compliance. This programme will help you understand your organisation’s legal duties, put a spotlight on any changes you need to make and ultimately ensure you reach the GDPR Fundamentals standard.

The GDPR Fundamentals standard has been devised to assist organisations in their efforts to comply with the new data protection regulation. It offers businesses the opportunity to obtain external recognition of their GDPR management system and has been written using the principles of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679).

If you are an organisation that processes any personal data (client or staff data) and operates in the EU or handles information concerning data subjects located in the EU you should consider meeting this standard. In short, if you are currently subject to the Data Protection Act, it is likely that you will also be subject to the GDPR.

To ensure your business is compliant, we would recommend that you need these three things:

  • the training,
  • the audit
  • and the certificate.

The Training will give you the knowledge to assess your organisation relative to the GDPR requirements using a practical framework that will assist you to understand what it means to be compliant. Businesses will receive a GDPR Fundamentals attendance certificate from the accrediting body on completion of the course of the 1-day training.

The Audit delivered in the form of a two-hour survey carried out by an accredited GDPR Fundamentals Practitioner will help you to assess your systems and policies against the demands of the GDPR Fundamentals standard.

The GDPR Fundamentals of Compliance is a recognised management standard for data protection compliance which immediately identifies that your organisation has been audited by an independent third party and that you can demonstrate compliance.

We have broken this down into three packages to help you to make the right choice depending on your organisation's needs:
