We completed the OneTrust Certification Training & Exam as part of Santander UK’s GDPR programme to onboard OneTrust as a strategic partner. Darren our fantastic trainer, covered each module with humour and enthusiasm and kept everyone engaged throughout the day, at a steady pace ensuring everyone was able to follow and gain a deep understanding. I would highly recommend completing this training workshop as it gives invaluable insights into the OneTrust tool and GDPR regulation as a whole.
