GDPR EU Essentials Online Training

Share:                 

This GDPR EU Essentials online training course explains how and why you play a crucial part in complying with the GDPR at work to keep people's personal data safe.

Everyone who handles personal data must have a broad understanding of the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR – which is all about keeping personal data safe, protecting the interests of the people whose data it is and the fundamental requirements needed to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation.

To keep up with the rise of the internet and how easy it was to share data across borders, in 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation replaced the Data Protection Directive 1995 and was enforced across the entire EU.

The Regulation went further than the Directive ever did and it gave people much greater rights over their data, it placed stricter responsibilities on organisations who used people’s data to keep it safe and to be accountable for everything they did with it; and, perhaps most importantly, it future proofed itself by being written in a way which allowed it to remain relevant even as technology and the ways in which we share data continued to change.

This course is split into two sections.

1. Background

This section covers the definition of Personal Data, which is anything which identifies or could identify someone and Processing, which means doing anything with the data, even just storing it.  This section also looks at the role of Data Controllers and Data Processors and Data Subjects.

2. The Regulation 

The 7 Principles of the GDPR form the backbone of the Regulation.  These are:

  • Principle 1: Lawfulness, Fairness, and Transparency
  • Principle 2: Purpose Limitation
  • Principle 3: Data Minimisation
  • Principle 4: Accuracy
  • Principle 5: Storage Limitation
  • Principle 6: Integrity and Confidentiality
  • Principle 7: Accountability

By the end of this section, you will understand what they are and what they mean for your role at work.  It will also explain why they are so important.

The responsibilities of the GDPR are all designed to create and uphold a set of individual rights.  These are:

  • The Right to be Informed
  • The Right of Access
  • The Right to Rectification
  • The Right to Erasure 
  • The Right to Restrict Processing
  • The Right to Data Portability
  • The Right to Object
  • Rights regarding Automated Decision Making

The course looks at the definitions of each of these different rights and what they actually mean.

Conclusion

On completion of this course, you will have an understanding of the 7 principles of the GDPR and background knowledge of what it aims to achieve and why it exists. 

You will also understand how your organisation must have a lawful basis for processing people’s data and must do so openly and fairly; how the data you collect and use must be adequate, sufficient, fit for purpose, accurate, and necessary; how there must be safeguards in place for keeping people’s data secure and confidential and your organisation’s responsibility to always be accountable for the processing it carries out.

By explaining the role that your organisation has to play under the GDPR, this course aims to help you understand the role that you play.

Your organisation may be responsible for compliance with the Regulation, but they can’t do it without your help.

There are interactive questions throughout the course to ensure you understand the content and the course concludes with a test so be sure to listen carefully.

The course can be completed in just 35 minutes and users will receive a certificate upon course completion.
