UK GDPR and Data Protection Awareness
Following Britain’s exit from the EU, the UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the toughest privacy and security law in the world.
Passed by the European Union (EU), and retained by the UK after Brexit, it imposes obligations onto organisations anywhere they target or collect data related to people in the UK, EU and EEA.
Fines of up to £17.5 million or 4% of global annual turnover can be applied for failing to comply which is in addition to the reputational implications and commercial issues that might impact your stakeholders.
The UK GDPR and Data Protection Awareness course helps enable all employees to better understand the implications of the UK GDPR, how it’s applied in the context of the organisation’s information security approach and how it affects them.

Aims of the course
The aim of the UK GDPR and Data Protection Awareness training course is to raise manager and employee awareness of the main elements of the regulations, its purpose, the responsibilities of duty holders, the implications of failing to comply, information security good practices and the part everyone plays in compliance.
While the Data Protection Act has been in place for many years the UK GDPR has updated and extended the responsibilities associated with Data Controllers and Processors. Failing to comply with the regulations can mean significant fines against those who fail to comply with its privacy and security standards, with penalties reaching into the tens of millions.
It is important to evaluate its impact on your organisation, and the need to implement necessary changes to your practices, processes and information technology systems.
Manager and employee UK GDPR training is an essential component in establishing, ensuring, and maintaining a robust information security management system.
