Data Protection courses Ireland

From May 2018, all organisations collecting or processing data from EU citizen must be adapted with the new regulations required by the GDPR (General Data Protection Directive).

The GDPR impacts almost all organisations that collect, store, use or transfer personal data. This includes companies in all industries including technology, cyber security, healthcare, financial services, legal, utilities, energy, consulting, government, human resources, marketing, telecommunications, retail, etc. In other words, everyone at some point might be affected by the regulations.

In order to help prepare our customers for this new legislation, New Horizons Ireland has partnered with the IAPP (international association of privacy professionals) to bring you a range of courses that cover data protection. The first two new courses are Preparing for the GDPR and The GDPR Primer for Data Protection Officers.
