• New GDPR training course endorsed by the Cloud Industry Forum

        • The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) has partnered with Assuredata, a GDPR Practitioner, and Federation Against Software Theft (FAST), to launch a new training scheme to raise awareness of the requirements to comply with GDPR.

          UK firms have until 25th May 2018 to ensure GDPR compliance and to mitigate themselves against the risk of large fines from the ICO, which could be up to four per cent of an organisation’s total annual turnover. The new course hopes to remove the confusion around GDPR and provide organisations with clarity as to the needs to passing the requirements and provide a plan of action for businesses to ensure security.

          Attendees of the course will also receive half price CIF personal membership, these services are designed to help educate, inform, guide, validate and support each member group in achieving their organisational and individual goals. 

          Alex Hilton, CEO of the Cloud Industry Forum said, "the majority of UK businesses are either unaware or unprepared for GDPR. Assuredata’s training programme is a step towards ensuring greater comprehension and readiness for this important regulation. It is important that businesses start this journey now to allow plenty of unrushed time to get this right and to fit it in alongside the day to day running of their business."

          According to CIF’s latest research, end user cloud adoption increased from 49 per cent to 78 per cent last year, and 75 per cent of cloud users expect to increase their usage. Employees using cloud solutions need to ensure that they have good practise before the regulation is active and these courses are designed to ensure that all employees have awareness of the risks inherent in today's data world.
