Course description

The BCS Foundation Certificate in Data Protection will benefit any employee whose role requires they take active measures to ensure the protection of an individual's personal information and that their rights to privacy are upheld.

Participants attending this BCS accredited GDPR training course will develop a practical understanding of EU and UK data protection laws and how to apply them in everyday workplace situations. The focus is on the incoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Act 2018. The course also looks at the new EU ePrivacy Regulation, which is set to repeal the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR).

Delivered over 3-days, the GDPR Foundation Certificate is a recognised workplace qualification. The course follows the latest BCS Syllabus (v2.4) and prepares participants for the 1-hour multiple-choice BCS Foundation Exam that concludes the course.

Course Rationale - Governance, Risk & Compliance

Choosing the BCS Foundation Certificate in Data Protection to develop the skills of select personnel within departments that process high volumes of personal information will be viewed as a positive step. One that outwardly demonstrates a strong commitment to building deeper, more trusting relationships with customers, service users, stakeholders and employees alike.

Who should attend

This course is intended for:

  • New team members in data protection, compliance or privacy roles 
  • Information Governance (IG) and Information Assurance (IA) teams
  • IT Security and Information Security specialists
  • Corporate IT and HR teams along with project managers
  • Marketing and sales professionals
  • Customer support and service delivery team members
  • It also benefits senior managers or directors of small and medium size businesses

Investing in the BCS Foundation to train operational employees will also help to reduce unnecessary human errors that can lead to a devastating and costly data breach, potentially resulting in a cut to cyber-insurance premiums. Ultimately, however, it means maintaining a constant state of compliance with the GDPR will become a more realistic objective.
