Who should attend this Data Protection Training Course?
This Dealing with SARs: An Executive Briefing course is designed for delegates at high-level positions who wish to learn about SARs in a short period of time. It is also suitable for individuals who wish to gain an understanding of the key points associated with SARs, although The Knowledge Academy runs a dedicated Dealing with SARs course, which we recommend for delegates who are not at the executive level or who may be handling SARs themselves.
There are no formal prerequisites for taking this course, meaning that any individuals who wish to learn about Subject Access Requests may attend.
Dealing with Subject Access Requests (SAR) - An Executive Briefing Course Overview
This succinct and precise course on Dealing with SARs is intended to imbue executive delegates with an understanding of how to respond to Subject Access Requests under the new GDPR legislation that came into force on May 25th 2018.
Understanding how and when to respond to SARs is crucial for maintaining positive relationships with customers and even employees. In addition, knowledge of SARs and appropriate response procedures is essential in guaranteeing that your organisation does not incur a fine of up to 20 million Euros (or 4% of your annual global turnover) for contravening the GDPR. Fortunately, with thousands of clients already trained in GDPR best practice, The Knowledge Academy provides outstanding and detailed tuition that has helped organisations around the world implement effective GDPR compliance.
This course is designed to teach delegates how to recognise, record, and respond to SARs in line with GDPR. This course will also instruct delegates on the appropriate procedures and timeframes for responding to SARs, empowering them to demonstrate GDPR compliance and put customers first.
Subject Access Requests can come from any individual on whom your organisation holds data; these people are known as Data Subjects, and can be employees as well as customers. This course will help you to identify who should be considered a Data Subject, the basic rights of every Data Subject, and how to recognise and respond appropriately to SARs dependant on their origin. The course also explains the extenuating circumstances that may allow you to refuse an SAR. Finally, we will cover the penalties that can be imposed by Supervisory Authorities for not responding—and ensure that your organisation is not subject to them.
