The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced on May 25th 2018 by the European Parliament - it replaces the current EU Directive 95/46/EC. The GDPR will ensure that data protection practices are up-to-date, secure, and responsive to the ever changing digital landscape, whilst giving EU citizens new data processing rights.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect May 25th 2018 and aims to enhance security and transparency of data processing within the European Union (EU), whilst giving EU citizens greater control over their data. The regulation will unify data processing practices within the EU, and must be adhered to by all companies globally if they are processing large quantities of data belonging to EU citizens.
The development of the GDPR is the first alteration and revamp to data protection laws in 20 years - it replaces the outdated EU Directive 95/46/EC that has not kept up with the initiation and development of the “internet age”. The regulation aims to protect EU citizens from security breaches revealing their personal data, whilst ensuring that any data processing concerning any natural persons is lawful, fair, and within the predetermined scope agreed when consent was given. Any deviations from the regulations set out within GDPR, will be subject to substantial fines that can reach €20m or 4% of annual worldwide turnover - which could be financially catastrophic. The instigation of the GDPR is much more than a fine-based system - it has additional benefits for citizens looking to engage with and ensure that their personal data is protected, and for businesses benefits include lower data storage costs and the ability to demonstrate compliance to build trust between stakeholders, investors, Data Subjects, and the public.
Businesses will be expected to instigate comprehensive governance measures that are proportionate to the scale of data processing. One of the fundamental requirements of the GDPR is the appointment of a Data Protection Officer (DPO) - this position will be mandatory in all organisations that have a core data processing operation, and concerns both Controllers and Processors. DPOs will be required to possess extensive knowledge of the GDPR laws prior to the regulation’s instigation, hence it is imperative that candidates take comprehensive GDPR Foundation and Practitioner courses to become fully informed. The DPO role is expected to be multifaceted and will require extensive knowledge of IT management, systems, data processing, and of the GDPR law, in order to overcome and prevent cyber-threats. Hence, our GDPR training courses educate candidates on how to implement a programme of compliance, whilst ensuring that they are professionally marketable as a Data Protection Officer - becoming a much sought-after employee.
