This course is aimed at giving all staff an awareness of the new EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that replace the existing Data Protection Act (DPA) on 25th May 2018. Topics covered include the rights of data subjects, the responsibilities of data controllers and processors, consent and data breaches.
The GDPR comes into effect on 25th March 2018 and replaces the existing Data Protection Act (DPA). The GDPR changes the regulations surrounding the way data controllers and processors handle data, introducing tougher requirements and giving individuals more power over what organisations can do with their data. We have designed this course to help staff gain awareness of the changes these regulations bring.
