Organisations concerned about the implications of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will now be able to benefit from Ascentor’s qualified support.

Our Information Assurance Practitioner, Paul Trethewey , has passed the Certified EU General Data Protection Regulation Practitioner qualification awarded by IBITGQ and accredited to ISO 17024.

Coming into law in May 2018, GDPR will provide a single, harmonised data privacy law for the European Union. With the increasing risk of data breaches from cyber attack, GDPR aims to prevent the loss of personal data by improving data security for all individuals living in EU member states.

However, GDPR will present implementation and compliance challenges for organisations, particularly in the public sector where the appointment of a Data Protection Officer will be mandatory.

The Data Protection Officer (DPO) responsibilities will be a challenge to deliver, given the breadth of knowledge required to manage IT systems, and the requisite familiarity with the legal aspects of the GDPR.

This qualification enables successful practitioners to fulfil the role of Data Protection Officer (DPO) under the GDPR, and covers the Regulation in depth.

As such, Ascentor can help advise organisations on implementation and compliance requirements, the necessary policies and processes, as well as important elements of effective data security management.
