Topics related to GDPR


A GDPR course is a type of law course that explores the concepts, laws and applications of the General Data Protection Regulation. As these regulations apply to any organisation that stores the personal data of individuals, GDPR training has become an essential part of training for many roles and industries.

To become GDPR certified, you must find a relevant GDPR scheme and then apply to a UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) regulated organisation for certification. As part of the accreditation process, you must decide which aspect of your product, process or service you want to be certified. Then, you’ll provide the relevant information (or mapping) on your data processing for evaluation.
