The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation that will enforce a stronger data protection regime for organizations that operate in the European Union (EU) and handle EU citizens’ data. GDPR constitutes the protection of personal data of employees, customers and others. In case organizations fail to comply with this regulation, they will be subject to heavy fines and damaged reputation. Considering that personal data represents critical and sensitive information that all organizations should protect, such a regulation will help put in place appropriate procedures and controls to prevent Information Security breaches. By May 2018, all organizations that operate in the EU should comply with this regulation.
An organization’s workforce represents a significant risk of a data breach. Encouraging individuals to think about GDPR in the context of their own data will help them to support data protection and privacy practices in their organization.
The GDPR Awareness course aims to promote an individual’s engagement in data privacy matters. It focuses on the key aspects of GDPR that affect an organization and the associated risks and opportunities. There is a strong emphasis on interactive sessions to engage participants in taking personal responsibility for making a difference. The course recognizes that understanding and interpretation of the regulation will continue to evolve, and organizations will be at different stages of their compliance journey. Real-life examples are used extensively, as well as latest guidance from the UK Information Commissioners Office.
