GDPR Training Course Contents - Subject to change

1. What is the GDPR?

This introductory section will explore the reasons we need data protection, give a brief overview of the general principles and define some of the terms used throughout the General Data Protection Regulations.

2. Processing Data

This section will cover the first five principles of the GDPR, which are all to do with
processing data. This concerns collecting, using and keeping people’s personal data – as well as making sure that it’s accurate, up-to- date and deleted when no longer needed.

3. Security

This section is about keeping people’s personal data secure. Here we’ll cover one of the new features of the GDPR - “Privacy by Design” - which requires that all systems are designed with data security, and the principles of the GDPR, in mind.

4. Accountability

Another new feature of the GDPR is its Accountability principle. Who is accountable, for what, and what the punishment is for non-compliance, have all been updated and we’ll explore that in this section.

5. Individual's Rights

The GDPR explicitly sets out the rights afforded to individuals, regarding the use of their personal data. We’ll take a look at these in detail in this section.

 FAQs regarding GDPR

When will the GDPR be enforced? 

The new law has already been enforced but you have until the 25th of May 2018 to be fully compliant.

The GDPR applies to personal data, so anyone handling or processing personal data will undoubtedly feel the effects of GDPR and will need prepare accordingly for its enforcement.

Current data protection directives state that personal data is "any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject");", this can include a name, email address, posts on social media, medical information, photos or even a computer IP address.

Yes, and they're pretty steep. Organisations can now be fined 4% of their annual turnover or in more serious cases - €20 million! (This is the maximum fine that can be imposed for the most serious infringements). 

Does Brexit have any effect on GDPR?

Brexit is going to take at least 2 years to take full effect, therefore UK businesses will need to be ready for GDPR.
