Until the 1st January 2021, the EU GDPR (European Union General Data Protection Regulation) provided a coherent and thorough personal data privacy law across all EU member states including the United Kingdom. Since then and our final transition from the EU, the GDPR has become the (retained GPDR 2016/679) UK GDPR for the United Kingdom and is primary data protection legislation, alongside the Data Protection Act 2018. 

Importantly, the UK GDPR also makes it a requirement for any organisation outside of the UK, which processes the personal data of persons within the UK to comply with the UK GDPR. This ‘territoriality’ requirement is the same as the EU’s GDPR.

Ultimately, the rationale for the UK GDPR is the same:

  • It aims to prevent security breaches and the loss of personal data by organisations that hold or process PII (Personally Identifiable Information)
  • It affects any organisation that offers goods or services (even free ones) or monitors the behaviour of UK citizens
  • Penalty for breaking the regulations can be financially extreme and significantly detrimental
  • Will be the lawful benchmark that all organisations who process or store Personal Information must adhere to

Training is a core element of the organisational measures required to be implemented by organisations.  This course is designed to provide you with a general understanding of the UK General Data Protection Regulation. This will provide awareness for the need for data protection and to support you in identifying the risks in relation to unauthorised access to personal data. The Data Protection Act 2018 which sits alongside the UK GDPR is not discussed in depth here.

An extremely thorough online course

This online course is much more than a tick-box exercise and requires the participant to think carefully about the subject of GDPR. Date Breaches and Cyber Security are becoming much more prevalent and shall only get worse. This course sets the foundation for staff to understand and appreciate their obligations under GDPR.

GDPR Awareness Training

Usually courses like this are dull and you can very easily switch off, but this course was brilliant and to the point. The information was accurate and interesting. I liked the way it was kept to short snippets of information.
