Training Course Contents:The GDPR builds on and replaces existing data protection law and 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.

The course starts by looking at data protection from the perspective of individuals and then moves on to look at what it means for your organisation and the job you do.
