More about GDPR training
What is GDPR training?
Our GDPR training courses are aimed at all professionals who work in any industry or sector, and in any size of organisation.
Anyone who handles the personal data of EU citizens must ensure their data protection and cyber-security processes meet certified EU standards.
GDPR training courses provide guidance on how to comply with GDPR privacy regulations and protect personal data.
GDPR training improves the management and security of key data, such as that of staff and customers, to avoid inaccurate or inappropriate disclosure.
Is GDPR training a legal requirement?
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the UK Privacy Act, and other data protection laws around the world, GDPR training for employees is not mandatory. It is however, strongly recommended.
Employers are obliged to deliver data protection training for staff and to record the results of that training. This can help prevent human error, protecting not only your staff but the whole organisation.
Organisations must ensure employees are aware of the issues associated with data protection. Cybersecurity training and skills assessments are a key part of your data protection, compliance, and governance strategy.
It’s not enough to train your employees once and then never again. You need to be able to prove GDPR awareness. GDPR compliance requires all organisations that handle personal information to have a process for regularly testing, assessing, and evaluating the effectiveness of any measures put in place.
