CEPAS Principles of GDPR

What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) course?

In a digital society, consumers are constantly sharing data with a range of organisations. GDPR is a new data protection regulation aimed at protecting the personal information of people living in the EU.

e-Careers has partnered with The Trust Bridge to deliver courses relating to Data Privacy Regulations and Compliance. The Trust Bridge team has been working with GDPR for over five years, working with EU and worldwide organisations.

GDPR is designed to replace the Data Protection Directive created in 1995 and places a much stronger responsibility on organisations to protect their customers’ data. Organisations in breach of GDPR can be fined up to 4% of their annual global turnover or €20million (whichever is greater).

We're proud of our excellent rating on Trustpilot, with over 14,000 reviews from our past students.

Course Details

Is the General Data Protection Regulation course right for me?

The new data protection regulation applies to all companies processing the personal data of people residing in the EU, no matter where the company is based.

If your role involves the acquisition, processing or storage of personal data, or your company needs to be GDPR compliant, this course is ideal for learning about the new rules and how they will affect you. It is also ideal for businesses wishing to ensure that all staff are aware of rule changes.

What jobs can I apply for after my CEPAS Principles of GDPR training?

If you currently work or would like to work in a job that handles personal data, this course will not only make you more knowledgeable on regulations but will also improve your employability as there is a much lower chance for you to violate GDPR leading to a hefty fine.

Typical Data Protection job titles:

  •  Data Protection Manager - £36k
  •  Data Protection Officer - £41k
  •  GDPR Consultant - £41k
