After much panic and some planning, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) were introduced across Europe and incorporated into the 2018 UK Data Protection Act in the UK, along with other data protection matters.
At the end of January 31 2020, the UK left the EU and entered a transition period during which time, our regulatory framework remains the same, but questions remain about what happens after that, especially in relation to international transfers
Here’s our training programme for data protection leaders. Please note we have a complementary programme for other staff. This programme is based around the themes and principles of the GDPR as applied within the 2018 UK Data Protection Act.
Course duration and format
This course can be completed in around 90-120 minutes. In order to provide a course which may be completed within this timescale, this course does not cover cybersecurity. To learn more about how to protect your personal information, please see our separate course on cybersecurity. Please note that to get the most from this course will require significant additional time to complete the checklists and to reflect on your own practice, but it is divided into sections so that you can complete it in a number of sessions. We advise you to complete each section at one sitting to maximise your learning, but allowing time between study sessions may enhance your learning by allowing additional time for reflection on both your learning and your current practices.
At the end, there is an online test, successful completion of which will enable you to get a certificate to provide evidence of your learning. You should be able to demonstrate what you learnt going forward in changes to your behaviours.
