GDPR Employee Training Guide

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25th May 2018. Now, under GDPR legislation, businesses must ensure ongoing training and awareness to reduce the risk of a data breach and subsequently, heavy fines, significant reputational damage and financial loss. Under the GDPR, your staff must be sufficiently trained in understanding its provisions, how to handle data securely and what to do in the event of a breach. More than 64% of data breaches are a result of human error, so your business can't afford to overlook GDPR training and education. If you fail to train your employees appropriately to the GDPR's standards, then your business may be subject to non-compliance, which can have substantial implications on your business.

More than likely, your employees will be the first to come across a potential data breach. Therefore, it's vital that every single employee has a basic understanding of the GDPR's standards and how to uphold them within your business every day.
