About This GDPR Training Course

Any business operating in the UK must comply with GDPR legislation. Introduced in 2018, the UK GDPR ensures that individuals have greater control over their personal information and that organisations process it securely and transparently.

Under the UK GDPR, personal data must be handled properly to ensure it is not misplaced, lost, stolen or misused. As such, organisations and the self-employed have obligations regarding how personal data is collected, used, stored and secured.

Every organisation that processes personal data must comply with the principles of the UK GDPR without exemption. GDPR online training is essential for any employee who handles any client or public data in any way.

Why Is GDPR Awareness Training Important?

Safe and secure data handling is fundamental to modern business. The GDPR affects every organisation, which is why all employees play a vital role in protecting personal data. To comply with the GDPR, employees must be aware of what it requires from them and what security measures they should implement on a daily basis.

When data breaches occur, organisations risk heavy fines and reputational damage. The UK GDPR sets a maximum fine of £17.5 million or 4% of annual turnover, whichever is greater.

GDPR failures can also result in other penalties, including:

  • 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 the UK GDPR laws and ensure staff are aware of data handling best practices. This online GDPR training for employees helps ensure they are aware of the relevant legislation and how to embed compliance in their routine work.

What are Your Responsibilities for GDPR Compliance?

The Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) establishes regulations to govern the privacy and protection of personal data. While it retains parts of the EU GDPR, the DPA is the UK’s implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation as is commonly referred to as the UK GDPR.

As an employer, it is your responsibility to prove your compliance with the UK 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 to be deleted and object to its processing in certain circumstances.

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

This GDPR training course also provides online data protection techniques that can help employers protect data from breaches or theft.
