Online Training Course
This simple-to-use interactive online course covers the key principles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and aims to help everyone who processes personal data at work to comply with the new law.

Your flexible training solution

Give your people who handle data a good understanding of the core data protection principles and confidence to handle data safely and securely.

Help them to appreciate why data protection really matters. Policies and procedures tick a number of compliance boxes, but are arguably of little use without adequate training.

Whether you operate in the UK, Ireland or anywhere in the EU, or are based outside the EU but process EU citizens’ data, this training is just what you need.

After completing the course your people will be equipped to understand why and how to protect and handle people’s personal information with care.  Clear reporting of who has completed the course and whether they passed the test can be provided  to demonstrate your commitment to data protection training.  Users will have access to the course for a year and content will be updated on a six monthly basis.
