GDPR Online Training FAQs

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.

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)

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.

DeltaNet International provides a full employee awareness GDPR elearning solution.

Our online training courses give all the information required to comply with GDPR. The content has been developed in conjunction with leading London law firm Wedlake Bell who are subject experts. It provides a comprehensive learning solution for organisations looking to stay GDPR compliant.

After taking these courses you will know:

  • What GDPR is
  • How to be compliant with GDPR
  • Who is responsible for ensuring GDPR compliance
