During this professional development course, you will develop your knowledge and understanding of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and how it broadens the concept of data into new areas of cyber and biometric information and coincides with significant changes in which cybercrime operates. You will learn how GDPR affects you and your organisation and you’ll explore how to communicate the nature of the challenge to a non-specialist audience within your organisation, whilst applying or devising toolkits to aid implementation.

As well as identifying areas of risk, vulnerability and the requirement for new practices, you will also learn how to assess risk and liability through the use of a helpful and reliable assessment tool, which will highlight the areas which may require your particular attention and to identify the areas less relevant to your company.

This course seeks to provide both theoretical understanding and practical knowledge of the new data protection regulation which can be transferred directly to the work environment.

This professional development course will provide you with:

  • An understanding, from an organisational perspective, of the strategic changes required to comply with the requirements of the GDPR.
  • The ability to recognise and review changes and new rights and concepts in data protections and how GDPR changes any interrelate with current or predicted information security threats.
  • Tools to identify how governance and accountability can be used in order to protect against risk and/or liability.
  • The ability to identify areas of risk, vulnerability and the requirement for new practices.

Learning and assessment

You will study this course 100% online. It comprises a range of activities including:

  • Undertaking activities to help you reflect and critique risk and liability judgements.
  • Reading extracts from texts and referenced materials.
  • Watching short videos and listen to audio lecture bites.
  • Think about the challenge of GDPR in an organisational and practical context

There is no obligation for you to undertake every activity, but being involved in all aspects of the course will help you to achieve a well-rounded knowledge of the General Data Protection Regulations.

There is no graded assessment. Instead, you will receive a badge for each completed Unit, and then upon completion of the whole course, you will be awarded with an e-certificate.
