If you are currently working in IT in the lead up to the GDPR implementation date (25 May 2018) you were probably trying to decipher the huge volume of data available on how to be GDPR compliant. I had already spent the year prior quietly reading and trying to absorb the thousands of free (!!!) GDPR resources online and I was becoming increasingly disillusioned at the reams of conflicting advice that seemed to emerge each day. More so because colleagues and customers alike were looking at me to advise them on the best way forward.
As GDPR day came ever closer I discovered that “IT Governance”, a well-known provider of risk management and compliance training were offing a one day “Certified” GDPR training course, just down the road from our offices in London. As it was a foundation course that was aimed at novices I jumped at the chance to clarify my thoughts and gain the knowledge I needed when I was offered the chance to attend as part of our own GDPR compliance initiative.
