General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with Cisco (GDPRC)


Course Overview

On May 25, 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced, significantly increasing potential fines and costs for data processing in EU member countries and anywhere EU personally identifiable information (PII) is processed. GDPR replaces the existing patchwork of EU National Data Protection legislation and brings a degree of consistency to the data protection landscape in Europe.

GDPR legislatively embodies the well-recognised privacy principles of transparency, fairness, and accountability and attempts to introduce a risk-based approach that enables innovation and participation in the global digital economy while respecting individual rights.

This one-day course will provide a good understanding of the new regulation, the changes it will bring and the potential impact it will have for your customer’s organisation. It will also examine the Cisco products, solutions and services to help provide customers with the key access, network, cloud and end-point technology building blocks to address the challenges they face in dealing with this regulation.
