GDPR (The General Data Protection Regulation) was enforced on May 25th 2018 by the European Parliament and forces GDPR Compliance for all EU businesses. Due to the new regulation, which replaces the Data Protection Act 1998, the Data Protection Act 2018 has now been passed. Because of The GDPR, a lot of organisations don’t know how to achieve GDPR Compliance and, as a result, want a better understanding of what is required.

We receive outstanding feedback
Our GDPR Compliance Training courses are delivered from an independent perspective, for the reason that, we believe this adds far more value. Whilst we cover the legal requirements of the regulation, we also explain what you need to do practically to be compliant, as well as procedures and processes. First of all, many IT providers deliver courses on the basis that they want you to purchase a product or solution, whereas, 2414 don’t sell any products. Furthermore, we have two options; Foundation and Practitioner. GDPR Compliance can be quite a complicated and time-consuming project, therefore, our certified practitioners make it as easy to understand as possible and, above all, are on hand to support you every step of the way. Another reason for attending our courses is that we try to use as many case studies and examples as possible.
Upon successful completion of the course you will have a good understanding of what GDPR Compliance means to your business, more importantly, how it affects each of the roles in your organisation including HR, Marketing, IT, Finance, Compliance and general staff or, if you are an independent consultant, what you need to move into GDPR as a career.
We provide you with practical examples that are related and specific to your organisation, with guidelines to start implementing GDPR as well as the tools to start the process. This is because we want to ensure that you are protected as a business.
