Does your organisation handle personal data? Did you know that in May 2018, the way you access and process personal data in the UK is changing? Are you up to speed with your data protection courses?
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes into effect in May 2018 (and is going ahead despite the UK’s decision to leave the EU). Under the regulation, any organisation that suffers a substantial data breach may be fined up to €10m or 2 per cent of its global turnover.
In May 2018, the UK Data Protection Act will be replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This has huge implications for organisations all over the UK, in both the public and private sectors.
It is vital that all employers and their employees understand the changes these new regulations will bring, before they come into effect.
This engaging GDPR training course covers the subject in comprehensive detail. You will learn about the potential effects of Brexit on data protection in the UK, the individual’s new and enhanced data protection rights in line with the GDPR, and the new and varied Data Controller and Data Processor responsibilities.
You will automatically get a course certificate on course completion – with your name, the CPD hours, the date and learning objectives.
The course contains additional resource materials, useful links and a refresher guide.
This GDPR training course is intended for anyone who handles personal information, either through manual or computer-held records. It’s for anyone who needs to brush up their skills with data protection training courses before the new legislation kicks in.
