Easy Steps to GDPR

Privacy is not something that I'm merely entitled to, it's an absolute prerequisite.” Marlon Brando

This course will help you develop an understanding of General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) for your organisation and what it means to you. The course will ensure your activities are clearly related to the purpose of your organisation and the need / problem you exist to address. Having a GDPR policy in place will help you look after your data and help you communicate clearly to others in your organisation what to do and ensure everyone within your organisation is clear about how it works.

I've always retained my privacy, but now I protect it even more.” Daniel Craig

Course aims to:

  • To develop the skills and knowledge necessary to understand what data is.
  • Develop an understanding of how to manage data that your organisation handles
  • Provide tools and resources to support so that you can keep up to date with the latest laws relating to GDPR
  • Sign-post for further information and support


Benefits of attending:

  • Hints and practical tips from DCA Advisors experienced in GDPR
  • Practical exercises to support the learning process
  • Insight from other organisations experiences
  • Time to ask questions about different scenarios.
