This course has been designed to provide awareness and information about the new General Data Protection Regulations or GDPR. There are many decisions to be made and steps to be taken by organisations who want to ensure that they are GDPR compliant and the decisions made will not necessarily be the same for all organisations.

During this course, we will provide an understanding of the terminology, principles and basic rules that will help to make GDPR compliance a little less daunting. The ultimate decision on how you work towards GDPR compliance in your workplace is down to you. We cannot in this course make you GDPR compliant as you need to actually apply the information to your workplace and make your own decisions.

GDPR is already here but the principle is an ongoing process of data protection, which should ensure that you are always reviewing and improving your data security.

The General Data Protection Regulations took effect on the 25th May 2018. It builds on the Data Protection Act and strengthens and unifies data protection with a new single set of rules for all EU Citizens.

The key changes are in relation to consent, transparency, expansion of personal data and special categories of personal data, children, communicating breaches, data protection by design, enhanced rights for data subjects and rules relating to using pseudonyms.

It has increased the scope of personal data, provides new rights for data subjects in regard to transparency, notification, access, portability and erasure, and mandates organisation requirements. It should also not be forgotten that compensation and fines of up to 20 million euros or 4% of a business's annual revenue can be enforced, for those that breach GDPR compliance.
