Introducing GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to strengthen and unify the principles of data protection for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area.

The GDPR is an incredibly important change to data privacy regulations so understanding its correct implementation is vital for all UK businesses and organisations, and particularly for staff who regularly deal with personal data.

This online course is designed especially for those front-line staff and provides a clear introduction to the main elements of the GDPR, including compliance and the consequences of non-compliance.

It explains the roles of key players – Data Protection Officers, Data Controllers, Data Protection Leads, and Data Processors and covers the main categories of personal data, along with the six lawful bases for processing data, and how to audit the data your organisation holds.

Other topics examined include the Seven Principles of the GDPR and the Eight Rights for Individuals, along with the importance of your Privacy Policy – how to construct one, and how to use it effectively when dealing with data subjects.

Finally, there’s important information on data breaches; how to avoid them, what to do if one is discovered and how to file a breach report.
