Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 5 sections
- 1 What is the GDPR?
- 2 Processing Data
- 3 Security
- 4 Accountability
- 5 Individual's Rights
This introductory section will explore the reasons we need data protection, give a brief overview of the general principles and define some of the terms used throughout the General Data Protection Regulation.
This section will cover the first five principles of the GDPR, which are all to do with processing data. This concerns collecting, using and keeping people’s personal data – as well as making sure that it’s accurate, up-to-date and deleted when no longer needed.
This section is about keeping people’s personal data secure. Here we’ll cover one of the new features of the GDPR - “Privacy by Design” - which requires that all systems are designed with data security, and the principles of the GDPR, in mind.
Another new feature of the GDPR is its Accountability principle. Who is accountable, for what, and what the punishment is for non-compliance, have all been updated and we’ll explore that in this section.
The GDPR explicitly sets out the rights afforded to individuals, regarding the use of their personal data. We’ll take a look at these in detail in this section.
About this course
Every country in the EU has its own data protection laws. This means that moving data from one country to another can be problematic. To help resolve this issue, the EU created the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, which unifies every country’s data protection laws under a single set of regulations; whilst also extending the control individuals have over their own personal data.
This GDPR Training for Management course provides an in-depth understanding of the GDPR, covering the core principles of the regulations, what you need to do to comply with them, and what rights it guarantees for individuals.
The course is designed for anyone who makes decisions about collecting, storing, and using people’s personal data, and will help you manage staff whose job it is to handle data on a day to day basis.
The GDPR was enforced on the 25th of May 2018, so it's vital that you are compliant. This course will help you do just that.
If you do not make decisions about collecting or storing data but still need to know about the GDPR essentials, head over to our GDPR Essentials Training.

Explore more on legislation
The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world that is vastly different from the time in which the 1995 directive was established. Although the key principles of data privacy still hold true to the previous directive, many changes have been proposed to the regulatory policies
The GDPR is a huge piece of legislation which has an impact on every organisation in every industry.
Any organisation which falls short faces huge costs, both in the form of fines and in a loss of business and reputation. In order to comply, it’s important that an organisation has a management team which understands its responsibilities. This GDPR for Management training does just that; it provides you with the tools you need to make your whole organisation GDPR proof and does so whilst presenting the information in the most clear and concise way possible.
