Why Data Protection Training is Important

Data breaches can cause a lot of problems for organisations, including loss of reputation and massive fines for non-compliance with data protection laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It is therefore important that organisations take steps to keep the information they store about customers and partners safe from unauthorised access. Without proper measures and awareness training in place for all employees, it's easy for members of staff to make mistakes and accidentally cause or allow a data breach.

What is a data breach under GDPR?
A personal data breach means a breach of security leading to the unauthorised or unlawful access to the data held by an organisation. It could include breaches that are the result of both accidental and deliberate causes. Broadly speaking, a personal data breach can be defined as a security incident that affects the confidentiality, integrity or availability of personal data.
What are penalties for breaching GDPR?
Regulators, such as the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in the UK, have the power to issue a monetary penalty for an infringement under the GDPR. For organisations that fail to comply with the GDPR and preventing data breaches risk face heavy penalties from the regulators – the standard maximum fine of €10 million or 2% annual global turnover, whichever is higher.
Why are data breaches bad for business?
Data Protection Authorities have the power to issue large financial penalties for an infringement under the GDPR, including fines of 4% of annual turnover in the event of a data protection breach. For businesses, this could mean major setbacks in revenue and loss in reputation. It can also impact relationships with existing customers, potential customers, suppliers, and employees.
