Course Introduction

Compliance training helps to ensure that employees are adhering to the regulations and laws required of them and that their actions do not put the organisation they are representing in a difficult or even illegal position. Failure to comply with legislation can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the EU legislation put in place to protect people’s personal information. Its aims are simple – to ensure that data held about individuals is used fairly and lawfully.

For example, most of us don’t want to be plagued with unwanted junk mail, emails or telephone calls. There is also a risk that our information could be used for criminal purposes if it gets into the wrong hands.

Sometimes the information that is held about us can be wrong.

There are probably many other potential problems that you can think of so you will understand why our information needs to be protected.

In this e-learning course, your participants will learn the data protection principles and the simple steps organisations and individuals can take to make sure they comply with them.​
