Our flagship training product, the Data Protection Primer is designed to provide a pragmatic bedrock for any individual aspiring to be a Data Protection Officer, or an existing Officer looking to supplement their existing knowledge with a framework which is embedded within countless case studies and practical solutions.

The 2 day course is run from Sytorus Dublin office, and provides attendees with a clear and comprehensive guide through Irish Data Protection legislation, whilst embedding the law within real life experiences and solutions, found throughout every sector.

In addition, Sytorus trainers use their own experiences as Data Protection Officers to clearly explain the requirements of the law and how they have successfully applied this within the culture, technology and business processes they have been involved with, over the years. The course comes with a full and detailed manual, is CPD certified, and all necessary refreshments and lunch are provided on each day.


The purpose of the GDPR training course is to give participants a fundamental understanding of the General Data Protection Regulation which is set to become law in 2018.

The 1 Day course explains the EU-wide legislation in the context of the individual’s right to privacy, as well as explaining the benefit of ensuring compliance – not merely in terms of how your organisation can meet its regulatory obligations, but also how your organisation can improve its data quality, ensure security for its IT assets, and reduce the risk of reputational damage which inevitably results from a data protection breach. Each course involves workshops and practical delivery of accessible content, and will prove invaluable to those wishing to gain insight into how this significant legislation will affect business operations going forward.
