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.
Data is created every second, with people performing 40,000 search queries every second on Google alone (that’s as much as 3.5 searches per day and as 1.2 trillion searches a year).
Knowledge of how to safely and lawfully handle this data is crucial for anyone working with public information.
For example, did you know that you have the right to a copy of any information held about you?
