A recent study by Alfresco and AIIM revealed that 21% of senior executives in the UK have little or no awareness about the effect the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will have on their organisation.
31% of the organisations questioned had experienced data loss or exposure in the past 12 months due to what they felt was staff negligence or bad practice.
Staff need to be aware of GDPR requirements
With organisations facing significant fines for non-compliance (up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater), it is essential that all staff have an understanding of the requirements of the new Regulation and how it will affect them.
All staff members should be made aware of the key changes introduced by the GDPR and the requirements that will affect their day-to-day work.
Get your staff prepared for the GDPR
With only nine months until the Regulation comes into force, now is the time to educate your staff on GDPR compliance.
IT Governance’s publishing division, ITGP, can produce all of its GDPR books in customised formats. Books can feature your company logo or a bespoke foreword, or can be customised to your company branding guidelines.
So far in 2017, ITGP has printed more than 6,000 customised books to help companies educate their staff on GDPR compliance requirements.
