Qualification: IDM Award in General Data Protection Regulation - Online

You will learn to:

  • Understand about when the GDPR will affect processing outside of the EU
  • Understand how the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was developed by EU lawmakers
  • Examine the key definitions and scope, for example:
    • When the GDPR affects processing outside of the EU
    • How the new law defines Personal Data
    • How/ when Consent will need to be obtained
    • What the changes are for Profiling
  • Find out what individuals need to be told about processing for marketing purposes
  • Realise when Data Processors can be liable
  • Ensure you can cope with the rights of the individual (e.g. Right to erasure)
  • Consider the impacts for your database

Following the outcome of the EU referendum, the UK Government will still need to implement the GDPR or a piece of similar legislation. Processing personal data relating to European citizens will be covered by the GDPR, even if the processing takes place outside the EU. Therefore, if your company is based in the UK but trades within the EU, compliance of the GDPR will still be mandatory. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and the DMA are both advising companies that there is no reason to delay plans to implement the GDPR as a result of Brexit.

The current price is an introductory rate and from the 1st November 2016 it will change.
