The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became part of the UK's Data Protection Act in 2018 and continues to apply, as the UK GDPR, post-Brexit. All businesses that handle personal data must ensure that they are aware of the rules brought about by the GDPR and must examine the processes they currently have in place to ensure they continue to comply with the law.

This GDPR training course will outline your main responsibilities and help you to start making the necessary changes. The biggest changes under the GDPR are in relation to obtaining consent, the right to be forgotten and the appointment of a Data Protection Officer.
