What is the GDPR
Delivers an introduction to the GDPR and data protection.
It is very important to grasp the exact meanings of the vocabulary used with the GDPR so that you can fully understand and implement the regulation. For example, any information relating to an identified or identifiable data subject is personal data.
The 7 Privacy Principles
Remember, the accountability principle is the new “7th principle” and relates to the other 6 principles. This requires organisations to take responsibility for what they and their staff do with personal data and how they comply with the principles.
The 8 Rights
The first right is the Right to be informed – individuals have the right to know why their data is being processed e.g. why their data is required. This relates to Privacy Notices.
Remember that all organisations processing personal data must have a Privacy Notice. This is linked to the right to be informed.
Subject Access Requests
This means providing the requester with a copy of their personal information. As with other requests, any method of submitting a request is valid.
Organisations need to ensure the correct and relevant Lawful Basis is assigned to processing activities and this is documented before processing personal data. An incorrect Lawful Basis may leave businesses open to fines.
A personal data breach means a breach of security leading to the destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data.
Handling Personal Data
It is important that employees know the correct procedures and maintain and continue good practice regarding handling personal data.
A regular programme of awareness training allows your employees to keep on track with the requirements of GDPR. Article 39 and 47 of the regulation places security awareness training of employees as a central goal.
Our training courses provides up-to-date training which is always kept updated when new guidance is issued by the ICO, helping to future-proof your company’s data protection compliance.
