About this Course

This General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) course is essential for anyone handling, managing or accessing data. It equips employees with an understanding of the key elements of data protection and how to comply with regulation, ensuring your organisation avoids fines, penalties and reputational damage.

It is vital that anyone who handles data as part of their job, including employees and managers, is aware of the current legislation. The GDPR applies to all organisations, regardless of their size or the amount of data they handle, and negligence can have a devastating impact.

In its early days, data protection compliance quickly became a key priority for businesses, as the risk of large financial penalties for failing to introduce a culture of greater data transparency was introduced.

Legislation has since given consumers more power over their data than ever before. They now have the right to know how their data is used and stored, and for how long. Moreover, they also have the right to be deleted from marketing databases, while businesses that fail to comply with any of these requests could find themselves facing a fine of up to £17 million, or 4% of their annual turnover, depending on which is greater.

This online course can be completed in just 30 minutes, which means that employees with a busy schedule can be quickly brought up to speed with the new requirements introduced by General Data Protection Regulation.

Did you know: GDPR applies to any information which can be used to identify an individual. Besides obvious data, like names and addresses, this includes things like passport numbers, car registration numbers and even CCTV recordings.

Has Brexit affected the GDPR?

The GDPR is an EU regulation which is enforced by the EU countries and protects the data of EU citizens anywhere in the world. When the UK left the EU, its citizens were no longer protected by the GDPR. Therefore, the UK government brought the Data Protection Act 2018 into effect which closely follows the GDPR. Another set of regulations called the UK GDPR were also introduced, which were a carbon copy of the EU GDPR.
