The General Data protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 both came into force on 25 May 2018, and govern how organisations collect, use, store and share personal data.
Given that all businesses will process some personal data (whether of its employees, customers or other individuals), the GDPR will be relevant. And given that businesses have an obligation to demonstrate their compliance with the GDPR, staff training is key to ensure that your workforce is aware of the obligations under the GDPR and how this might impact on their role.
There is a lot of scaremongering on the internet, and it isn’t any wonder that many businesses are concerned about the impact of the GDPR, or confused about their obligations.
