Bringing data regulation up to date for a digital landscape, the GDPR includes new rules for processing data, profiling, consent and individual rights. 

Whether you're responsible for marketing or data management, it's imperative you understand the new rules and how they will impact your role and responsibilities. After May 25th UK organisations could face fines of up to €10m or 2% of global turnover (whichever is greater) for lesser incidents and €20m or 4% of global turnover for more serious incidents.

Find out how the changes will affect you and start planning for them with the IDM. We offer a portfolio of courses and qualifications to support compliance at every level of your organisation.

The clock is ticking...
