2) Processing Data

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.

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.

Section 4 of this course looks at the accountability principle

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.

Easy to follow and understand

No summary provided

OK for someone in employment.

Great, I imagine, for someone in a large company/organisation. Sometimes wondered how it applied to someone in a local youth organisation with half a dozen members where 2% of annual turnover could be pretty much paid with loose change in one's pocket.

GDPR Legislation

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.

The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world that is vastly different from the time in which the 1995 directive was established. Although the key principles of data privacy still hold true to the previous directive, many changes have been proposed to the regulatory policies
