Protecting Data (GDPR)

Protecting your organisation's data with GDPR eLearning
This course is available as part of the Compliance eLearning Suite in one great package.

Course Overview 

Our Protecting Data eLearning course focuses on educating employees about the new GDPR legislation, with an emphasis on accountability and ownership when it comes to processing and storing personal data. The course covers three topics in detail: data and the new laws/regulations; the principles, rights, and obligations of GDPR; and potential data breaches under GDPR. At the end of these three modules, learners will have the chance to answer realistic, scenario-based questions to see what they have learnt about their responsibilities under the law.

What to Expect
Suitable for employees at all levels, the key learning outcomes of this Data Protection and GDPR-ready course are:


  • What GDPR legislation states about using, processing, and storing data
  • What the seven data protection principles are and what they mean
  • What the enhanced rights of the individual are under GDPR
  • How to process data transparently in relation to the data subject
  • What informed consent means
  • How to create an accountability culture incorporating privacy by design
  • What activities could lead to a data breach and consequent penalties
  • The importance of accuracy and storage limitation under GDPR

Understanding what the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) means for your organisation is the first important step towards compliance. Due to come into force in May 2018, GDPR will mark the most important change in data privacy regulation in the last twenty years. The regulations will broaden the definition of 'personal data' and call for enhanced transparency, more rights for the individual, and a culture of accountability that incorporates 'privacy by design'.
