GDPR made simple for non-technical staff

Save the date: 25 May 2018. By that Friday, all organisations that process EU residents’ data must comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the new EU regulation that will supersede the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). One of the most noteworthy features of the new data protection law is the penalties for non-compliance – up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million, whichever is greater.

Training for data privacy practitioners

Many companies have already added skilled figures to their workforce to make sure the process of complying with the Regulation goes as smoothly as possible, or have enrolled their data protection officers and managers on professional training courses to give them a solid understanding of the implications and legal requirements of the Regulation.

But that’s not enough

All staff members, including non-technical ones, should be made aware of the changes brought by the new regulation, its new principles, and the new roles and responsibilities that will affect their daily jobs. What is the best, most time-saving and most cost-effective method – for large organisations especially – to ensure all staff are on the same page and aware of the new compliance requirements?

The answer: the GDPR e-learning course.

The brand new GDPR Staff Awareness E-learning Course is what your staff need. Using non-technical language, it gives them a sound introduction to the new regulation, focusing on the GDPR’s roles, principles and processes. More information about the e-learning course can be found here >>
