GDPR: Are you ready for the huge data privacy shake-up? All businesses must comply!

Businesses are still not prepared for the GDPR despite the implementation of the data legislation being just around the corner.

From 25th May 2018, all businesses that handle personal data must ensure that they are aware of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rules and must examine the processes they currently have in place to ensure they continue to comply with the law.

We have partnered with High Speed Training to bring you an online training course, to outline your main responsibilities and help you to start making the necessary changes. The biggest changes under the GDPR are in relation to obtaining consent, the right to be forgotten and the appointment of a Data Protection Officer. Every company must comply, it is the law. 

The course is only £25+vat and takes approx 1 hour to complete.

By the end of this course learners will:

  • Understand the purpose of the GDPR.
  • Be able to explain what information falls under the GDPR.
  • Have the necessary knowledge to implement GDPR compliant processes.
  • Know what is expected of firms in regards to data security.
  • Know what rights Data Subjects have under the GDPR.

The course is divided into four accessible, interactive modules and includes an assessment at the end.

Assessment: You will be asked 10 multiple choice questions with a pass mark of 80%. The answers are marked automatically so you will instantly know whether you have passed. If you don't pass don't worry! You can take the test as many times as you need with no extra charge.

On successful completion of the course you will be sent a quality assured certificate through the post the next working day. This can be used to provide evidence for compliance and audit.
