Despite the short length of this course, we have ensured that none of the critical elements of the regulation are missed.

This 20 minute course is split into three simple sections; starting with the ways to help learners understand personal data (including how it should or shouldn't be used), followed by the principles of data protection, integrity, and confidentiality.

Why is GDPR Refresher Training Important?

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

As a leading provider of HR Compliance eLearning, our experts are often asked about the GDPR. We've collected some of those questions and answered them for you here...

When did the GDPR come into effect?

The GDPR was approved and adopted by the EU Parliament in April 2016. After 2 years, the regulation took effect and the GDPR came into force on 25th May 2018.

What is personal data?

Any data which can personally identify an individual - whether by itself or when combined with other pieces of information - is considered personal data. If that information has the potential to cause harm then it is considered a special category of personal data – this includes bank details, sexual orientation, or political opinions.

Benefits to Your Business

The GDPR is an important piece of legislation which requires organisations to be transparent with the use of their data, as well as upholding people's rights by keeping it protected and secure.

To comply with the Regulation, all relevant members of staff must be made aware of their roles and responsibilities.

However, training doesn’t end there. It's crucial for this information to remain in the mind of your employees, so that you can practice correct GDPR procedures. This will allow your organisation to stay compliant whilst avoiding data breaches that could cost your reputation and a huge fine.

This refresher course is perfect for keeping the topic of GDPR fresh in your memory. Designed for people who have already taken GDPR training, it serves as a convenient reminder of the essential information in the shortest possible time.
