On the 25 May 2018, Ireland, along with all other EU member states, will see the introduction of the EU’s substantial overhaul of data protection laws, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

PAI have answered this call and developed a suite of three New GDPR, Certificate training courses commencing this September. These two-day fully-accredited training courses will update you on the new Regulations, outline the changes and arm you and your organisation/ department with the skills and methodologies required to implement change in how you process data and get GDPR prepared.

Find out how the GDPR will impact your organisation in practice, and learn about the potential “value add” from the requirements for compliance in other areas of your organisation, as well as the potential pitfalls that may arise as the Regulation is rolled out and enforcement commences.

 

“Data protection laws exist to ensure fair play for everyone in how their identity and personal data is used by big corporations, governments and all sorts of organisations and businesses. The GDPR is a game- changing overhaul of our current data protection laws. It will impact every type of company and organisation regardless of their size and require many of them to take significant action well before May 25th 2018”, Helen Dixon, Data Protection Commissioner (Press release, 25th May 2017)
