General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Training

GDPR training

GDPR Training to ensure your company is ready for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) changes and avoid fines and unnecessary costs.

On May 25, 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced, significantly increasing potential fines and costs for data processing in EU member countries and anywhere EU personally identifiable information (PII) is processed. GDPR replaces the existing patchwork of EU National Data Protection legislation and brings a degree of consistency to the data protection landscape in Europe.

GDPR legislatively embodies the well-recognised privacy principles of transparency, fairness, and accountability and attempts to introduce a risk-based approach that enables innovation and participation in the global digital economy while respecting individual rights.

GDPR is a complex set of requirements which needs to be addressed through a mixture of people, process and technology. As such organisations will need to adopt the right business processes in conjunction with appropriate technology solutions to move toward compliance.

Principle 6 of the GDPR states that personal data should be “processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures”

This means that our approach to GPDR is to provide customers with the building blocks they need to address the challenges they will face in planning to deal with the regulations.
