Act Now Training is pleased to announce two forthcoming GDPR training workshops in Dubai (UAE).

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will not just have an impact on Data Controllers and Data Processors in the European Union (EU). It will also apply to organisations in the rest of world that are:

  • processing personal data of individuals living in the EU;
  • offering goods or services to individuals in the EU, even if there is no charge for such goods or services; or
  • engaging in monitoring or profiling activities of individuals in the EU (for example, the use of cookies/behavioural advertising).

Failure to comply with GDPR could lead to massive reputational damage and a fine of up to 20 million Euros or 4% of global annual turnover (whichever is higher).

Our Dubai workshops will examine the legal and practical impact of GDPR on Middle East/GCC based organisations. All the key issues for Data Controllers as well as Data Processors will be discussed including international transfers, contract clauses and guarantees, security and breach notification and when a Data Protection Officer needs to be appointed. Crucially we will discuss how GDPR is a business opportunity rather than a threat. By the end of the workshop delegates will be able to write their own action plan for GDPR compliance.

Ibrahim Hasan, solicitor and Director of Act Now Training, will deliver the first two workshops in Dubai. He said:

“I am really pleased to design and deliver this new GDPR workshop in Dubai. It will add to our growing experience of delivering data protection training abroad. Dubai is the latest addition to our increasing international portfolio. We plan to use it as a platform to showcase our other GDPR courses and consultancy services.”

Our 2018 course programme contains many more GDPR courses and live webinars which are held in locations throughout the UK. Our GDPR Practitioner Certificate is proving very popular with those who need to get up to speed with GDPR as well as budding Data Protection Officers.  If you require these courses delivered at your premises, tailored to your needs, please get in touch.

Finally, we have sold over 350 copies of our GDPR handbook. We are donating £1 from each sale to the  DEC Rohingya Crisis Appeal.

Happy New Year!
