Event Details


Business organisations, irrespective of their nature, collect, process and store personal data gathered from customers, suppliers and colleagues. In May 2018, a new European privacy regulation called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was enforced and permanently changed the way businesses collect, store and use customer data.


The GDPR covers the portability of data from one firm to another and encourages businesses to set up processes and products in a safe and proportional way. It also enhances the rights of individuals by furthering the rights associated with individuals’ personal data.


Penalties for non-compliance can be severe including significant fines and reputational damages. Therefore, it is vital that all professionals are familiar with the “Brave New World” of the GDPR.



Training Objectives


By the end of the programme, participants will be able to:


  • Understand the basic Definitions of the GDPR
  • Comprehend the needs for businesses and organisations defined in the GDPR
  • Define what constitutes personal data according to the GDPR
  • Acknowledge the importance of compliance with the GDPR
  • Understand the basic principles of GDPR compliance
