About GDPR Staff Awareness Training

Any business operating in the UK has to be in compliance with GDPR legislation. Personal information and privacy are a growing concern, and this framework for data protection was introduced in 2018. The purpose of GDPR compliance is to ensure that citizens have control over their personal information that organisations store as part of doing business.

As a result of Brexit, in the UK, EU GDPR was replaced by UK GDPR. While there are slight variations in these two legislations, in practice they are largely the same.

Organisations and employees need to handle data properly and keep it safe and secure. It is vital that the personal data of customers and citizens does not get misplaced, lost, stolen or misused. As such, organisations have obligations in terms of how personal data is collected, used, stored and secured.

Everyone must comply with the principles of GDPR, without exemption. According to a GDPR white paper, organisations must have a ‘privacy by design’ structure for their data collection to ensure that they follow these regulations.

GDPR online training is also essential for any employee that handles any client or public data in any way.

Why Is GDPR Awareness Training Important?

Safe and secure data handling is the bedrock of modern businesses. GDPR affects every organisation, which is why all employees play a vital role in protecting personal data. To comply with GDPR, employees must have an awareness of what it requires from them and what security measures they should implement on a day to day basis.

When data breaches occur, they put organisations at risk of heavy fines, as well as reputational damage. UK GDPR regulation sets a maximum fine of £18 million, or 4% of annual turnover, whichever is greater.

GDPR infringements can also result in other penalties. These can include:

  • Warnings and reprimands
  • Temporary or permanent bans on data processing
  • Ordering the restriction, erasure or rectification of data
  • Suspension of data transfers

It is in every organisation’s best interest to maintain compliance with GDPR laws and ensure their employees are in the know. This online GDPR training course can help ensure employees know about the laws and are reminded of them regularly.

What are your Responsibilities for GDPR Compliance?

The Data Protection Act 2018 establishes regulations to govern the privacy and protection of personal data. This legislation is largely similar to EU GDPR, and is commonly referred to as UK GDPR.

The seven principles of GDPR strengthen and harmonise the data protection laws, which gives individuals more control over their data. Examples of these GDPR principles include; collecting data with the user’s consent, utilising the data for the intended purpose, keeping the data as minimal and accurate as possible and keeping the data confidential and secure.

As an employer, it is your responsibility to prove your compliance with GDPR by ensuring that all the personal data you collect and process from your users is done lawfully, fairly and transparently. You are required to get explicit consent from users by written or signed agreements and you can only collect the data necessary for the intended specific purpose. Keeping the collected data secure and protected from unauthorised parties is also crucial.

Customers whose data is being used have a right to know what personal data is collected about them and how it is used. They also have the right to access your data, request it be deleted and object to its processing in certain circumstances.

This online GDPR course helps organisations understand the principles of GDPR and the steps to be compliant with it. This course provides data protection training for staff members, teaching them how to handle data according to GDPR principles and how to prove their compliance.
