GDPR Awareness Training Courses


GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) will become UK law on May 25th 2018 and will fundamentally change how all businesses and organisations manage and process personal data. The new EU-led regulations transfer enhanced levels of rights to individuals and increase the onus on organisations to ensure they are storing data securely, processing it appropriately and, critically, only send communications out when they have clear and express permission – ‘consent’ – to do so.

The regulation is a change of such scale – as are the potential repercussions of not complying – that every organisation, from sole traders to the FTSE100 goliaths, from private and public sector to charities – needs to review their current policies and procedures and ensure they are compliant in how they process, manage and store personal data of customers, prospects, associates, staff and more.

Why should I choose this training?

Fully accredited week-long training courses are available for those in certain roles who need to understand every detail, but for many that is an expensive and time-consuming approach and is not required by the vast majority of small business owners, heads of departments or team leaders.

Our training courses, delivered by qualified GDPR Practitioners, are deliberately jargon-free meaning anyone can attend safe in the knowledge the course will be delivered in a straight-forward and practical manner.

Delivered in a single day, our Awareness course is delivered in an informative and practical manner which will advise you of everything you need to know to start taking the necessary action, and give you comfort that you’re minimising the risks associated with this new legislation. It is pitched for those who want to:

  • Understand what GDPR is;
  • Understand what the risks are to your own business;
  • Start to appreciate how it might affect their organisation;
  • Learn more about the detail without getting caught up in legal and IT jargon
  • Start working out what processes and policies may need review
  • Begin an action plan to ensure readiness and compliance by May 25th 2018

Outputs and Outcomes

Anyone attending this session will leave with the start of a personalised action plan, a copy of the presentation and supporting information.

All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance after the training.

Attendees will:

  • Understand what GDPR is and will have an understanding of what it means for their organisation
  • Take supporting materials and checklists back to their place of work to help colleagues
  • Generate a company-specific “next steps” action plan, which can be used immediately to start applying in practice

Who should attend?

GDPR affects all organisations of all sizes. Whether you are in recruitment, legal services, marketing, web development, accountants, trade associations, Healthcare or any other industry, someone will need to understand the new regulation and implement an action plan.

From our experience, and abiding by the general principles of the best Change Management methodology, the more senior the person sponsoring this project, the better as owners and the Board of Directors will ultimately be accountable for following due diligence and minimising risk.

Companies over the size of around 20 employees should probably think of sending more than one person to help company-wide understanding, whilst larger organisations may wish to send a number of staff to learn more and get briefed first-hand. If you are interested in having training in-house, to a number of employees, please get in touch to discuss further.

It is especially recommended for:

  • Small business owners
  • Heads of department/team leaders of:
    • Finance
    • Procurement (you’re ultimately accountable for any third-parties who handle your personal data)
    • HR (Payroll & training)
    • IT
    • Marketing
    • Sales
    • Customer Services
