Wenso Secures BCS Accreditation for Its GDPR Training and Workshop

Benefitting from reliable training to meet the compliance needs of the new regulation.

Manchester, UK, 14 August 2018: Wenso Ltd, the Manchester-based IT solutions and services provider, has been given accreditation by the British Computer Society (BCS) for its General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training services. As one of Britain’s foremost providers of end-to-end GDPR solutions and services to organisations across the globe, Wenso delivers in-house and online instructor-led bespoke training and workshops.

The British Computer Society (the Chartered Institute for IT) is a leading industry body for IT professionals around the world. The BCS is the only professional body in the UK with the ability to grant chartered status to IT professionals under its Royal Charter. The BCS accreditation is another milestone to Wenso’s growing portfolio of accredited courses and IT consultancy services.

According to Mohammed Mushtaq, CEO of Wenso, “At Wenso, we pride ourselves on delivering high quality training programmes that are designed to equip individuals and organisations with a solid knowledge and practical skills needed to operate successfully within their organisations. With this endorsement from BCS, we have increased our portfolio of accredited courses and are able to further offer our clients the added assurance that they can gain from our one-stop GDPR compliance solutions.”

Martin Jackson, Head of Wenso’s Governance Risk Compliance (GRC) division added, “Wenso’s GDPR training and workshops not only provide organisations with a practical understanding of this new regulation, it’s implications and legal requirements, but also potential benefits it can bring. This ultimately avoids heavy fines and unnecessary costs, as well as reputational damage, and helps with improving customer engagement for many organisations. Wenso trainers are practising consultants with decades of practical experience in data protection, information security, governance and compliance issues. Now that our GDPR training programmes are fully BCS-accredited, organisations will be able to further benefit from such training, whilst gaining internationally recognised certification for their business.”

Wenso’s GDPR training programmes have been designed to support organisations around the world to comply with the new regulations that came into force on 25 May 2018. GDPR legislatively aims to give control back to EU citizens and residents over their personal data. It embodies the privacy principles of transparency, fairness, and accountability and aims to provide a risk-based approach that enables participation in the evolving global digital economy, while respecting individual rights. Wenso’s current GDPR certifications include workshops on GDPR Foundation and GDPR Practitioner.
