General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) Online Training Course

Our General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) online training course can help you to train your staff to help reduce the risk of non-compliance with GDPR.

From May 2018, significant penalties are being enforced for non-compliance with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), it is therefore essential that your staff understand the requirements of GDPR.

GDPR Non-Compliance Penalties

GDPR is enforced through the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and non-compliance with the new GDPR regulations can mean significant financial penalties, fines can result in penalties of up to €20M or 4% of your annual turnover.

Our General Data Protection Regulations online training course has been designed to help reduce your risk and exposure to prosecution by illustrating the significant financial risks you face for non-compliance, as well as the damage that non-compliance can have on your company name and reputation.  The online GDPR training course also outlines what to do if there is a GDPR non-compliance event or data breach.

The instructional design of the GDPR course and easy to follow course content with interactive features means that your staff will learn and retain the important information quickly and effectively.

GDPR Training Course Overview

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) online training course looks at how the GDPR regulations replace the previous UK data protection act and the EU data protection directive. It covers how it is used to bring inline data protection and reduce variation across existing legislation and data protection principals.

Information is also included on the severe penalties and fines for non-compliance as well as the role of the ICO and how they regulate the requirements of the GDPR.

Practical advice is provided on the actions needed to protect personal information and what GDPR is set up to protect.
