GDPR in Education Training

16th March 2018

GDPR is the biggest change in Data Protection legislation for 20 years, coming into effect on 25 May 2018, and schools, colleges and universities need to be ready for the new regulations.

GDPR is the biggest change to data protection regulations in two decades and is a major challenge for many businesses. But the new EU data protection regulation has left many companies unclear about their obligations in order to become compliant with GDPR.

The new regulations introduce a much greater territorial reach in terms of liable businesses and harsher fines for non-compliance, so GDPR training is essential.

So what is GDPR and how can you make sure that your company is compliant?

Our GDPR training covers everything you need to know to get up to speed with how your organisation can remain compliant.

About GDPR Training

This 20-minute course will ensure your organisation is ready for the significant changes to data protection that GDPR brings.

Our online resource will highlight key areas of change and the actions required to ensure your organisation is ready for this new regulation.

Learners will gain a thorough understanding on all aspects of GDPR:

  1. Key questions – why is the EU introducing GDPR and what impact does this have on the UK?
  2. New principles? – the specific requirements under the new regulations
  3. Key changes – what is the scope of GDPR? Consent, design by privacy and the role of Data Protection Officers explained
  4. Potential penalties – failure to comply would result in penalties. Do you know the maximum fine?
