General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Master Class

Protection of personal data of EU Citizens has taken a major step forward with the arrival of the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR. The GDPR provides a framework for legal and secure processing of personal data and most of all provides EU citizens rights to control and manage their personal data. The impact of compliance with the GDPR will be felt on a global scale so there is a fair chance that your organization might be impacted.

CTG can facilitate you by providing a training program that will give you the knowledge and concepts to set up your GDPR compliance program.
