The dramatic increase in the use of personal data and the risks associated with that use has resulted in the introduction of data protection regulations around the world. All organisations that deal with data relating to EU citizens must comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force in May 2018.
The GDPR imposes significant requirements and provides for substantial sanctions on all obliged individuals and organisations, and represents a major advance in global personal data protection regulation. In 2020 alone, the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) imposed more than £40m in fines for GDPR failures, highlighting how data protection has become one of the most pressing regulatory areas for organisations.
The objective of our GDPR course is to provide you with an understanding of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and its relevance to businesses and employees. It demonstrates how data protection breaches could have serious consequences on you and your business, including criminal prosecutions, bad publicity and the risk of compensation claims from individuals who have suffered damage.
This course is suitable for all employees who need to understand the scope and impact of the GDPR, and uses a number of realistic business case scenarios which can be applied to your role.
