Training course contents:
These training course materials are about the EU General Data Protection Regulations and include all the training materials necessary to run your own GDPR – Data Protection training course.
The GDPR aims to strike the right balance between the rights of individuals and the interests of those with legitimate reasons for using personal information.
One of its aims is to provide standardised data protection laws across the EU. The intention is to make it easier for individuals to understand how their data is being used and to be able to raise complaints if necessary. Data users handle our personal data and we will be looking at how these regulations might affect the jobs we do.
There are consequences for failing to comply with the regulations. Organisations can face unlimited fines and individuals can even be sent to prison. So it is really important that we make sure that we always deal with people’s data in the right way.
