Introducing GDPR Online Training
Introducing GDPR Online Training
Understanding the reasons for and scope of the GDPR can mean that data is handled professionally, securely and in compliance with the Law. This is a benefit for individuals and the company as a whole as it provides a level of confidence that things are being done correctly and protection from potential legal issues.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to strengthen and unify the principles of data protection for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area.
The GDPR is an incredibly important change to data privacy regulations so understanding its correct implementation is vital for all UK businesses and organisations, and particularly for staff who regularly deal with personal data.
This Introducing GDPR online course is designed especially for those front-line staff and provides a clear introduction to the main elements of the GDPR, including compliance and the consequences of non-compliance.
It explains the roles of key players – Data Protection Officers, Data Controllers, Data Protection Leads and Data Processors and covers the main categories of personal data, along with the six lawful bases for processing data, and how to audit the data your organisation holds.
Finally, there’s important information on data breaches; how to avoid them, what to do if one is discovered and how to file a breach report.
