The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the European Union’s new data protection regime which came into effect in May 2018.
It has wide territorial scope – it applies not only to organisations with a physical presence in EU member states, but also to entities located anywhere in the world, if they are processing personal information about, or monitoring the behaviour of, EU citizens to whom they are offering goods or services.
GDPR also introduces vastly increased fines. The maximum fine for a serious infringement is 4% of annual worldwide turnover, or €20 million, whichever is the greater. Therefore even a smaller organisation could potentially face an administrative fine of up to €20m.
Under GDPR the burden on an organisation to demonstrate compliance has increased.
Demonstrating compliance without effective and ongoing employee training programs on your policies and procedures, including how you integrate those policies into your on-the-ground practices, is difficult. Regular data protection training for employees is a key element of demonstrating compliance, by embedding data protection into your operations and daily activities.
Keep on top of your GDPR compliance obligations by using us for your training needs. We provide organisations with bespoke training solutions to suit their business, from face-to-face training sessions to flexible online options such as webinars and Skype.
Whether or not we are acting as your outsourced Data Protection Officer, we can assist with the design and delivery of a data protection training programme.
