GDPR eLearning to ensure your business is compliant
Our GDPR courses are available as part of the Compliance eLearning Suite in one great package.
GDPR Training courses
We offer a number of GDPR-ready eLearning courses to help your organisation get up to speed with GDPR legislation.
Ranging from comprehensive, more extensive thirty-minute courses, to short-course options and microlearning, our selection of GDPR eLearning is designed to equip your employees with the knowledge they need to feel confident processing and storing data in-line with GDPR directives.
Comprehensive GDPR courses
Protecting Data is a broad, yet thorough, eLearning course. It is designed to provide your employees with the information they need to know about GDPR in a straightforward, easy-to-digest manner. The course breaks down the principles of GDPR into three detailed topics: data and the new laws/regulations; the principles, rights, and obligations of GDPR; and potential data breaches under GDPR. At the end of the course, learners will have the chance to answer realistic, scenario-based questions to see what they have learnt about their responsibilities under the new GDPR law and will gain a final score.
Preventing a Data Breach (Global) is an immersive eLearning course which places learners inside a fictitious company with the task of uncovering a number of data breaches which have taken place. Recently updated alongside subject-experts in time for GDPR, this course is designed to underline the do's and don't's when it comes to handling, storing, and protecting data and exemplifies real-life processes whereby the GDPR's 'privacy by design' ethos should come into force.
GDPR Short-courses and microlearning
A great place to start, our Introduction to GDPR eLearning course offers a short but insightful look at the rights of individuals under the new law. The course places learners into real-life scenarios where a data breach has taken place, and explains how and why it happened, and what steps could and should have been taken to prevent it. By taking this course successfully, learners will have an overview of the changes that GDPR will introduce to data protection law and will also understand key steps to take to protect data every day.
In our Preparing for GDPR course, organisations will learn how to prepare for the new legislation and what they need to do differently from May 2018 onwards. The course looks to answer questions employees may have about how to remain compliant and what the consequences could be for non-compliance.
Our eGuide to GDPR Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) provides your administrators with exactly the knowledge and tools they need to complete a PIA under GDPR. The guide thoroughly explains what PIAs are used for and why they are important under the new law, and includes downloadable templates and a number of other useful reference materials that will come in handy when completing a privacy impact assessment.
The eLearning course titled Accountability takes a closer look at the GDPR directive that promotes transparency and how and why this part of the legislation is significant. The course covers how to demonstrate accountability and also how to minimise the risk of breaches.
The final eLearning course, Erasure: The Right to be Forgotten, is a microlearning course which takes a five-minute, focussed glance at this fundamental aspect of GDPR legislation. The course covers what employees' responsibilities are upon receiving a request to erase personal data.
All our GDPR training courses are available off-the-shelf for ease of use; we can also work with your subject experts to tailor the approach and information to suit your organisation's requirements. Using the Adapt Authoring Tool you can even modify our courses yourself.
Are you GDPR Compliant?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU regulation designed to strengthen data protection for individuals within the EU. It applied from May 25th 2018 following its publication in the official journal of the EU on May 11th 2016.
The GDPR states that organisations must adopt appropriate policies, procedures and processes to ensure compliance or risk fines of up to 4% of turnover or €20m, whichever is greater.
Who does GDPR apply to?
The GDPR applies to all organisations within the EU and also those based outside the EU who offer goods and services to EU citizens or who monitor EU citizens behaviour within the EU.
The legislation extends the reach of data protection principles to include:
- Data Controller (this is the organisation that owns data and decides what it will be used for. For example, DeltaNet's customers)
- Data Processor (this is the organisation that processes data on behalf of the data controller. For example, DeltaNet International)
What can you do to ensure compliance with the GDPR?
Compliance with older data protection regulations is a good start towards compliance with the GDPR as there is a degree of common ground between the two.
However, in order to ensure compliance, organisations will need to have a thorough understanding of a number of points such as exactly what data is held (customer, employees and suppliers for example), with whom it is shared, who acts as a controller and processor, and precisely what documentation is required (such as policies and contracts for example).
Organisations must have appropriate measures in place to protect the data they hold, which include data protection audits, policies and contracts.
