Data Privacy

Data Privacy

Handling Personal Data

Any type of information that could lead to identifying an individual is classed as personal data, and is subject to strict legal regulations when handled in professional working environments. Therefore, being able to ensure compliance to data privacy laws is essential so that organisations can secure the trust of customers, partners and employees, and safeguard the financial well-being of the business.

The focus on data privacy is set to intensify in May 2018 when the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force – a move that will standardise data privacy regulations across European Member States, and place greater emphasis on the protection of personal data.

By delivering the ‘Data Privacy’ training programme to your employees, you can help them understand the new data privacy rules, making them aware of how it relates to their role and how they can comply. In accordance with the GDPR, the programme explains the legal regulations that apply to different types of data, how the rules can be applied and the consequences of breaching the policies.
