The GDPR has arrived – are you compliant?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in effect for almost three weeks now – are you compliant, are you still working towards compliance or are you unsure of where to start?

Compliance is not optional, and for many organisations it will be a lengthy process. Prioritising the areas where a lack of action leaves your organisation exposed is important.

With our extensive knowledge and comprehensive range of solutions – including many free resources – we are here to help you wherever you are on your GDPR compliance journey.

Quick wins

We’ve also compiled a list of quick wins that will allow you to demonstrate GDPR compliance, or at least show that you’re working towards compliance, which could work in your favour should you suffer a breach early on.

These include ensuring that the board understands the potential risks of non-compliance, ensuring that all areas of the business are involved in the project, reviewing documentation and training staff.

A key component of any GDPR framework is employee awareness and education. Are your staff aware of the Regulation? Do your staff know what changes the GDPR brought into effect and how these changes will affect the way they work?

Our interactive e-learning course introduces employees to the GDPR, and highlights the key compliance obligations that organisations must meet.

If you are looking for more in-depth training that provides the specialist knowledge and skills needed to deliver GDPR compliance, consider our certified Foundation and Practitioner training courses.
