You can’t avoid the GDPR - and you certainly wouldn’t want to get it wrong! But do you feel duly aware of the GDPR requirements and their implications for your organization?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to give individuals more control over their personal data. It also unifies regulations within the European Union (EU) for international businesses. For GDPR compliance, companies are required to adhere to stringent criteria in the way they process, use and store customer data.

Failing to legally and securely use customer data can result in heavy financial penalties, as well as poor customer relations. The best way to avoid this, as advised by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), is to raise adequate awareness of the GDPR across an organization.
This short online training course introduces students to the basic concepts of the GDPR. This will provide decision-makers with enough knowledge to engage in further discussions with specialists and GDPR officers inside their organizations.

The GDPR places the responsibility of data protection in the hands of every individual within an organization. Or, rather, it holds organizations accountable for the actions of every individual they employ.

No longer is data itself protected: the individual, themselves, are protected. That means that anyone handling data becomes responsible for protecting the individual. This includes those working in Sales, IT, HR and so on. It is therefore very important to ensure staff at all levels within an organization are aware of the GDPR regulation. More than that, organizations must show they have taken the necessary steps towards compliance in order to avoid penalties.

This ‘GDPR Awareness’ online course briefs and prepares decision-makers and leaders on the GDPR. All essential knowledge is covered, enabling users to engage in further discussion with specialists and other stakeholders.

The course is accessible on multiple devices, including mobile phones and tablets, giving professionals the chance to study whenever and wherever they need to.

Benefits for Individuals

This short online training course provides professionals with adequate knowledge and skills for keeping their organizations compliant with the GDPR. The EU regulation introduces various duties and roles which must be filled within an organization. The course provides clarity on those different roles, alongside their individual responsibilities.

Benefits for Organizations

Holding GDPR training records will help your business demonstrate its compliance with the regulation. If you fail to build the GDPR into your business, your staff may come into conflict with the regulation.

This online training course can help you provide your employees with a fundamental understanding of the regulation. It will ensure they are aware of the ramifications of data misuse. This will help your organization to build a strong data protection culture amongst your employees.
