Director, Fort Privacy

I've designed this course to help your staff quickly level up in the principles and practices of what's expected under the GDPR. A culture change starts at the top and it needs everyone in the business to row in behind it. This is what's needed to meet the challenge of doing business in a post-GDPR world.

This course clearly communicates both the spirit and the letter of what the GDPR aims to achieve. Your staff are your first line of defense and equipping them with the data protection knowledge they need is an essential step to take on your compliance journey.
