    From limited knowledge of the expectations of GDPR the Certified Data Protection Officer course delivered by IG Smart took me with ease to a greater level of understanding and confidence.

    I would highly recommend IG Smart’s GDPR training courses. The ability to take a subject matter that albeit important, can often be dry, and bring this to life in a way that is easy to learn from is absolutely unique in my experience of training providers
