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.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a data protection and privacy regulation introduced in the European Union (EU) to protect individuals within the EU and European Economic Area (EEA). GDPR aims to give individuals more control over their personal data and unify regulations within the EU for international businesses.

The GDPR regulation came into force on the 25th of May 2018. It requires that companies adhere to stringent criteria in the way they process and use customer data. Failing to use customer data legally and securely can result in heavy financial penalties (the largest of either €20 million or 4% of a company’s annual revenue), as well as poor customer relations, which can be highly detrimental for major organizations.

The best way to avoid this kind of scenario, as advised by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), is to raise adequate awareness of GDPR across your organization. This online training course provides learners with an in-depth understanding of the purpose of GDPR, along with its impact on businesses and the action steps required to ensure that an organization stays GDPR-compliant.

GDPR places the responsibility of data protection in the hands of all the individuals within an organization, including those working in Sales, IT, HR and so on. It is therefore very important to ensure staff at all levels are aware of the GDPR regulation. Organizations must also show they have taken the necessary steps towards compliance in order to avoid the biggest penalties.

The GDPR Action and Implementation training course has been designed to train staff at all levels within an organization. The course provides a simple explanation of the regulation, alongside practical steps to ensure that an organization is GDPR-compliant. The course covers the key GDPR terms, its principles and the roles required within an organization to ensure GDPR compliance.

Benefits for Individuals
