The Importance of Data Protection Training:
Understanding what data protection regulations, such as the Data Protection Act 2018 and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), mean for your organisation is the first important step towards compliance. The GDPR which came into force in May 2018 marks the most important change in data privacy regulation in the last twenty years and is regarded as the gold standard for protecting individuals' personal data. Protecting personal data within your organisation requires a culture of accountability so that customers and partners can feel that they have true ownership of their data. Non-compliance with the GDPR could result in heavy fines and damage your organisation's reputation.
