GDPR Online Training

Course overview

The new General Data protection Regulation is the biggest shake-up of EU data protection laws in a decade. And With the amount of personal data held by organisations dramatically increasing, it has never been more important to make sure your employees are aware of their responsibilities when handling data and the implications.

After coming into effect in May 2018, now more than ever businesses are under pressure to ensure they are handling, storing and protecting personal data correctly. For non-compliance, businesses face a fine of €4million or 20% of their average turnover – whichever one is the highest.

This 30-minute data protection elearning module will help you understand the EU General Data Protection Regulation, which governs how personal information must be handled. You'll learn the principles of the new regulations and how they apply to handling data in any workplace so that when the time comes, you feel confident in handling data correctly.

The training deals specifically with EU regulations, although core principles and guidelines can be applied in any country.

Learning outcomes

After completing the elearning you will be able to:

  • Define personal information and explain how organisations must control and process people’s personal data
  • Understand the changes to the rights of the individual incorporated into the GDPR
  • Recognise the importance of consent and how individuals are protected in the GDPR
  • Understand the governance structure organisations will be required to put in place to comply with GDPR.
