EU GDPR Practitioner Training Course

Course Description

This EU General Data Protection Regulation Practitioner instructor-led course builds on the GDPR Foundation qualification to equip practitioners to manage GDPR compliance in Irish and EU organisations of any size. It is not a legal qualification; it equips GDPR practitioners to work with legal advisors and to ensure that GDPR compliance is effectively designed, implemented and maintained.
