EU General Data Protection Regulation Awareness Overview
This 1-day GDPR Awareness course provides an introduction to the GDPR’s terminology and purpose. Candidates will learn how to appreciate the necessity of complying with the GDPR - ensuring that personal data is secure and that your organisation does not face a catastrophic fine of up to 20 million Euros or 4% of your annual global turnover. The multifaceted nature of the GDPR means that organisations need to have their systems reviewed and enhanced - which requires a number of individuals with specialist hard-skills. Hence, this course offers an introduction to the GDPR and enables candidates to enhance their knowledge of what their role will be in maintaining a programme of compliance.
Since it came into force on May 25th 2018, the GDPR has helped unify data protection methods across the European Union - ensuring that organisations that process, store, or monitor data are taking preventative steps to safeguard data belonging to EU citizens. The ever-growing threat of data breaches and cyber attacks means that organisations must develop stringent systems-based operations, to ensure the safety of personal data - hence this course will educate candidates of the fundamental principles, articles, and regulations that underpin the GDPR as legislation.
The regulation places citizens at the forefront of data processing and in control of their own data with new rights. Consequently, the regulation has had large repercussions for organisations involved in marketing, cloud optimisation, and data storage - it is now essential that they obtain new consent from clients for data collection, set up legal contracts, and abolish their utilisation of unstable storage mechanisms. Therefore, this GDPR training course helps explain the requirements of the GDPR for organisations and teaches candidates about how the GDPR will affect them.
