BS 10012:2017 +A1:2018 Implementation Training Course

BS 10012:2017 is the British Standard which specifies requirements for a PIMS which provides a framework for maintaining and improving compliance with data protection requirements and good practice. The 2017 edition of BS 10012 was written in recognition of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and closely aligns with the Regulation. In 2018, some small amendments were made as a result of the UK Data Protection Act 2018 coming into force and the Standard became BS:10012:2017+A1:2018. This course covers those amendments.
