The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25th May 2018.
This course covers the key principles of the GDPR and how to adopt good data handling practices to ensure your organisation can comply with GDPR requirements while continuing to provide a high level of service to your customers.
Many employees may lack the necessary knowledge to manage and protect data and risk falling foul of the new EU General Data Protection Regulation.
‘Ignorance’ will not be an excuse and could in fact put you in a far worse position with the regulators.
You need to be prepared, have the processes in place and understand what actions you need to take now to ensure compliance.
Making staff aware of GDPR and its legal requirements is a key element in any organisation’s GDPR compliance framework. A lack of an effective staff awareness programme means that organisations run the risk of breaching GDPR, which can have serious financial consequences and cause reputational damage.
Organisations should be designing and implementing an engaging training programme to give staff a clear understanding of the key changes introduced by GDPR and the requirements that will affect their daily work.

Understand the background to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) including:
- Why data privacy is important
