GDPR Action and Implementation

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on the 25th May 2018. The fundamental right to privacy lies at its heart: companies can no longer process customer data without express permission and must adhere to stringent criteria in order to use it legally and securely. If not, they can face serious financial penalties, to say nothing of what can happen to their customer relations.

Do you need an actionable and reliable source of guidance on the requirements of the GDPR?

Our GDPR Action and Implementation online training course provides learners with an in-depth understanding of the purpose of the GDPR. It gives a realistic view of the impact of the regulation on businesses and shows the steps required to ensure GDPR compliance.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) exists to give individuals protection over their personal data. It consolidates the European Union (EU) regulations and makes clear the responsibilities for international businesses operating in the EU. There are stringent criteria on the way customer data is used and processed, and they must be constantly adhered to throughout an organization.

The GDPR places the responsibility for data protection in the hands of organizations. This includes employees working across all departments, including Sales, IT and HR.

It is the duty of the organization to ensure - and to demonstrate - that staff at all levels are aware of the GDPR requirements. Organizations must show they have taken the necessary steps towards compliance in order to avoid the biggest penalties in the event of an audit.

The GDPR Action and Implementation training course has been designed to train staff at all levels within an organization.
