Learn at your own pace about the GDPR

This distance learning course is a modular recording of our popular one-day EU GDPR Foundation classroom course, which provides a comprehensive introduction to the GDPR and a practical understanding of the implications and legal requirements for organisations of any size.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides a single, harmonised data privacy law for the EU. It aims to prevent the loss of personal data by improving data security for all individuals living in EU member states. The GDPR came into force on 25 May 2018, and organisations that fail to comply face fines of up to 4% of annual turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater.

Delivered by the CEO and founder of IT Governance Ltd Alan Calder, the training sessions are built on the foundations of our extensive practical experience gained advising on compliance with data privacy laws and related information security standards, such as ISO 27001.

The benefits of the GDPR Foundation distance learning course

  • Flexible - Distance learning lets you learn in your own time from the comfort of your own home or office. Stop and start the recording according to your schedule, repeat modules that you want to go over again or skip parts that cover familiar topics. If you have a busy schedule and cannot commit to a whole day’s uninterrupted training, this is the solution for you.
  • Professional development - The course supports professional development, and those who pass the included exam are awarded the ISO 17024-accredited EU GDPR Foundation (EU GDPR F) qualification by IBITGQ. It is also accredited by the Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) and satisfies the IISP Skills Framework requirements at Level 1: A1 – A7, B1 and C2. It also qualifies for five CPD/CPE credits.
  • Cost-effective - Because distance learning courses are recorded WebEx sessions, they offer considerable savings over classroom and Live Online courses, which both feature live interaction with a trainer.

  • Business directors or managers who want to understand how the requirements of the GDPR will affect their organisation.
  • Managers involved in or responsible for GDPR compliance.
