The European Commission introduced the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which was implemented on 25th May 2018.The regulation has mainly been implemented in order to:
Force companies to be clearer on their data collection and usage;
Improve data protection and prevent data infringement;
Establish improved control and reactivity to prevent data leakage.
These new regulations play an important role at a time when both the volume of data is skyrocketing, and threats are growing at a similar rate. A key factor of any organisation’s GDPR compliance is staff awareness and education and this course is ideal for both an introduction to GDPR and for continual development.
