The Importance of Data Protection and GDPR Training

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) defines a number of responsibilities for employees at various levels within an organisation. All employees are responsible for processing personal data in line with regulation. Where organisations are sharing data with third parties, they must also undertake additional data protection due diligence to ensure they are processing the data in line with regulation. Awareness training for all employees is vital for ensuring that they are aware of their responsibilities under GDPR.

What is the role of the DPO?
The Data Protection Officer (DPO) is a leadership role required by EU GDPR. This role exists within companies that process the personal data of EU citizens. The primary responsibility of the DPO is to ensure compliance with the GDPR and advise senior management and employees on the appropriate measures to take to stay on the right side of compliance.
Why is accountability important for data protection?
For organisations, taking responsibility for what they do with personal data and demonstrating the measure they have taken to protect individual rights is important for better legal compliance and also offers organisations a competitive edge. Accountability is a real opportunity for organisations to demonstrate how they respect people’s privacy and can help develop and sustain people’s trust.
What responsibilities does a controller have when using a processor?
The data controller is responsible for assessing that its processor is competent to process personal data in line with the GDPR’s requirements. This assessment should take into account the nature of the processing and the risks to the data subjects. As per Article 28(1) of the GDPR, a controller must only use a processor that can provide “sufficient guarantees” to implement appropriate measures for ensuring compliance with the GDPR.
