Course Introduction

This GDPR qualification will help you gain an understanding of what the General Data Protection Regulation is and why you need to apply this to your organisation. This certification will also help you gain the skills to meet the criteria of becoming a Data Protection Officer (DPO). 

The European government published the EU GDPR so that businesses in Europe and the UK can strengthen the security of processing personal data. Cyber attacks are frequently affecting major companies and the regulation is aimed to prevent this from happening.

This course is delivered by The Knowledge Academy.
