GDPR CERTIFICATION & TRAINING

GDPR training

Since the introduction of GDPR, people are increasingly aware of their personal data and the way it is stored and used.

There is no longer an excuse for companies who mishandle this information, and the penalties for doing so are enormous.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has stated that if a business achieves a GDPR Certification it will help demonstrate compliance with GDPR to the regulator and mitigate against possible ICO enforcement action, such as fines. This Certification will provide you with the opportunity to engage in a process to achieve a GDPR training Certification to ensure that you can quickly and easily reach GDPR compliance, and can demonstrate this to your clients too.

All staff within a business are expected to undertake GDPR training that is appropriate for the level of data that they handle, and this is vital to minimise the risk of a data breach. Regardless of your job role, our GDPR Certification or our GDPR Essentials Training will give you everything you need to meet the ICO’s annual training requirements.
