Why You Need GDPR Training

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives more control to individuals over their personal data, and how it is handled and stored. It applies to all organisations - whether inside or outside the EU - that offer goods and/or services to individuals in the EU.

It is therefore vital for organisations to raise awareness amongst their workforce on the importance of protecting personal data they hold, understand the key principles under the GDPR, learn about enhanced data subject rights and grasp the new obligations for organisations.

What is the GDPR Regulation 2018?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is one of the toughest privacy and data protection laws in the world. It was passed as a law by the European Union (EU) on May 25 2018 and it aims to impose obligations onto organizations which process or collect data related to EU residents. Failure to comply with the GDPR could lead to a fine of up to €20 million or 4% annual global turnover – whichever is higher.
What are the key responsibilities under GDPR?
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to guide businesses on how to process the personal data of its data subjects. The main responsibilities for organisations is to ensure the privacy and protection of customers’ personal data, giving customers the right to question how their data is being used, and enabling regulators to demonstrate accountability and impose fines on businesses not complying with GDPR requirements.
How does the GDPR affect businesses globally?
The European GDPR was developed with the aim to implement a uniform and consistent data protection regulation across EU member states. In addition to EU members, any business or organisation which market their products or services to residents in EU member states, regardless of their location, is subject to the GDPR. Therefore, GDPR impacts data protection requirements for organisations globally.
