GDPR training and staff awareness

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) brings substantial changes to the rules around personal data and its use. To ensure effective compliance by 25 May 2018, your organisation needs to have managers in place who understand the requirements of the GDPR and are well equipped to plan, implement and maintain a compliance programme. In some instances, there will also be a requirement for your organisation to appoint a suitably qualified and trained data protection officer (DPO).
