The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on the 25th May 2018. The fundamental right to privacy lies at its heart: companies can no longer process customer data without express permission and must adhere to stringent criteria in order to use it legally and securely. If not, they can face serious financial penalties, to say nothing of what can happen to their customer relations.
The UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) advises that step one in preparing for the GDPR is to raise you and your organization’s awareness. Good e-Learning’s online GDPR Action and Implementation course offers you everything you need to do just that! Take your first step to becoming GDPR-compliant with Good e-Learning.
Why take this course?
We are used to data protection being the realm of digital security experts and IT departments. However, the GDPR places the responsibility of privacy in the hands of everyone in an organization, including those working in marketing, sales, IT and HR, as well as those sitting all the way up in the boardroom.
The reach of the GDPR is global, rather than being restricted to the European Economic Area. Wherever you are in the world, if you are collecting or processing data on anyone in the EU, you will need a GDPR compliance strategy. This is not just about EU citizens: everyone located in the EU, including those traveling for business or vacations, is covered, regardless of their nationality or place of residence.
Even though the consequences for businesses are profound and far-reaching (with the maximum penalty being the largest of either €20 million or 4% of the culprit’s annual revenue), a recent YouGov survey revealed that over 70% of businesses have yet to start preparing for the GDPR. Remember, in the event of a breach of the regulations, you will need to show that you have taken the necessary steps toward compliance if you want to avoid the worst fines!
