GDPR Training Course Contents

1. Personal Data

Right now, how many organisations do you think have access to your personal data? 10? 20 organisations? It’s probably a lot more than you think! 

This section looks at what is included as personal data, what is meant by ‘processing’ this type of data and what rights each of us has over our own personal data.

2. The Principles of Data Protection

Everyone who uses personal data has to follow strict rules and you’ll learn about these as the principles of data protection. They’re important, as they help you and your organisation ensure that personal data is used in a way that protects the rights of the people whose data it is, and following them is key to complying with the GDPR.

This section looks at each of the Principles of Data Protection in turn, covering privacy notices and fair processing notices and the need for explicit consent.

3. Integrity & Confidentiality

The sixth principle is all about keeping personal data safe and secure. It’s about protecting data from accidental or deliberate loss, destruction, damage or unauthorised access.

What you do as a person who uses or processes data can have a very significant effect on the security of your organisation’s data. So, you*need to know how to keep data safe.

In this section, we’re looking at who’s responsible for keeping personal information safe and how this can be done – such as through day-to-day good practice and good computer security.

The GDPR was enforced on the 25th of May 2018. All organisations must now be fully GDPR compliant.

Who will the GDPR effect?

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

What constitutes as personal data? 

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. 

Are there new penalties?

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.

I was concerned that maybe I wasn't going to be able to absorb all of the information provided. However the after receiving a 100% score from the test at the end I surprised myself. This is in part credit to how the information is laid out in a manageable and easy to use course. I now feel confident that my knowledge is refreshed and I can put the GDPR principle safely into practice in my work environment.
