GDPR Training Courses

GDPR Training Courses

In addition to the one-day foundation workshop, we run a series of GDPR training courses here at MCS, allowing you or your staff the opportunity to gain various degrees of knowledge and become familiar with key terminology.

Choose from a short 2-hour, introductory overview session, which gives you an understanding of the essentials or alternatively one of a series of in-depth half-day training courses on the more detailed aspects of the GDPR legislation.
