The qualifications are aimed at delegates that have, or wish to have, some responsibility for data protection within an organisation and need to understand the changes that the GDPR and the UK Data Protection Bill will bring to data protection legislation and what needs to be done to prepare their organisations for compliance. Fusion offer the following two courses:

Foundation Certificate | Synopsis (3 Day)

Knowledge of UK data protection law, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Bill along with an understanding of how they are applied in practice, is important for any organisation processing personal information. The BCS Foundation Certificate in Data Protection is designed for those who wish to acquire a sound grounding in the key elements of the law and its practical application.
