Why Is GDPR & Data Security Fundamentals Course Important?
Organisations have a legal duty and a duty to their clients to ensure that data is handled securely and in a correct manner. A failure to comply with UK GDPR can result in fines of up to £17.5 million, or 4% of global turnover, whichever is greater.
Breaches in data also result in numerous other consequences, such as a lost of client trust, company assets and operational disruption.
On average, over 40% of business in the UK experience some form of cyber attack each year. These includes a large majority of phishing attempts as well as sophisticated attacks, such as malware. However, a large majority of data breaches are due to human error.
