GDPR Training for all Employees

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the law that regulates the processing of personal and special category data (previously called sensitive data) by organisations established within the European Economic Area (EEA). The EEA includes the European Union (EU), Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

The GDPR also applies to the processing of personal data of individuals residing in the EEA by organisations not established in the EEA. This means that it applies to organisations with an operation, affiliate, branch office, or local agent or representative in the EEA. The penalties for breaching the GDPR are severe, so businesses must ensure compliance.

Our GDPR Training Course with help your employees understand what personal data is, how to protect it, how to escalate requests from data subjects and how to report personal data breaches.

We also offer a similar course aimed at leaders entitled Training for Managers.
