Businesses are required to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures that ensure and demonstrate that they comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The very first of such measures, suggested by the UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), is staff training. However, GDPR training is more complex than for other regulations. It's not just about telling staff to report suspicions. Your staff need to become familiar with various principles of consent data security and retention and the rights of individuals. In certain high-risk roles, they need a deep understanding of lawful bases, dealing with subject access requests and data protection impact assessments.
Skillcast offers a library of 20+ e-learning courses for GDPR training. These include core training courses on GDPR - both at all-staff and manager levels and practical training for all staff on safeguarding personal data online, offline and on social media. It also includes more specialist training courses on the principles of data protection, lawful basis, consent, international transfers, individual rights, and more.
