GDPR Awareness

In April 2016 the General Data Protection EU 2016/679 Regulation (GDPR) was adopted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA), and became enforceable from 25 May 2018.

In the United Kingdom, the GDPR superseded the Data Protection Act 1998 and regulates the collection and processing of personal data more strictly than its predecessors. And coupled with the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018), it is essential that employees – especially management, are trained on how to handle personal data legally.

Online GDPR training – and annual refresher training can help your organisation ensure compliance with data protection laws in the most efficient way possible.

GDPR training: a legal requirement?

Yes. GDPR training is a legal requirement for all personnel involved in the processing of EU & EEA Citizens’ personal data.

Our GDPR online training course has been produced in conjunction with and checked by Hewitsons LLP – specialist Data Protection Lawyers who have fully reviewed the accuracy of the information in our training course.
