Last week, local training provider Rock Learning organised Certified EU GDPR courses attended by 41 delegates at Foundation level and 21 delegates at Practitioner level, in association with UK-provider IT Governance.
The new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into effect on 25th May and include significant changes in the way companies and public bodies will be allowed to handle personal data.
Delegates from the private and public sector learnt about the new Regulations and steps they can take to ensure compliance.
Rock Learning’s Founder, Jo Abergel, noted: “Whilst many of us had a basic awareness of GDPR, these courses have helped us understand the new requirements in detail and the significant penalties for non-compliance. By offering this accredited training locally, we were able to save people having to make expensive trips to the UK to gain the required knowledge.”
Data Protection Commissioner, Paul Canessa, greeted the Practitioner delegates on their final day of training and remarked how pleasing it was to see this type of training taking place on the Rock. The Gibraltar Regulatory Authority sent three of its own staff members on the course.
The Foundation course took place st the University of Gibraltar and the Practitioner Course was hosted by Isolas LLP.
