The regulator’s expectation is that 100% of staff across all business types will have a high awareness of GDPR legislation and that staff will complete GDPR training regularly.
The fastest and most convenient way for businesses to ensure that they are GDPR compliant is to offer Briefed online training to all staff.
We provide certification to those who successfully complete our online training as a means to demonstrate that staff across your business have received adequate training.
Do you know the consequences of failing to be GDPR compliant?
• The legislator Issues a press release naming (and shaming) companies who have a breach of GDPR legislation
• Employees can be prosecuted personally in the criminal court
• The fine for sending an email to the wrong person has been as high as £120,000
• The fine for a serious breach of data protection can be up to £17 million or 4% of your business’s turnover
Can you risk losing clients?
Would a large fine force you to make redundancies or close your business?

What format does the training take?
All of our online training is self-led. Trainees can begin a training course at any time and complete it in one sitting, or dip in and out at their own convenience.
Based on feedback from past participants, we provide all training through text and images. There are no video or audio elements, meaning you can complete it on any of your devices, anytime, anywhere.
We have designed our courses to require a short time commitment but to be absolutely comprehensive. We pride ourselves on offering concise, clear information, with absolutely no legalese. Throughout the training we offer practical, easily understood examples to illustrate GDPR in action and the consequences of breaching the legislation.
At the end of the training students complete a multiple-choice test. All those who successfully complete the training and short test receive a certificate of completion.
What levels of training does Briefed offer?
We provide two levels of training.
Our Fundamentals course is our entry-level course, which is designed to provide basic awareness of GDPR and ensure that you meet the mandatory training requirements expected by the regulator.
Time commitment: less than 45 minutes
Our Advanced course provides a deeper level of understanding of GDPR legislation. It is particularly relevant to those who manage large amounts of data and/or who would be significantly impacted by a publicised breech of data or a fine of £17m/4% of turnover.
Time commitment: less than 90 minutes
