GDPR training and staff awareness

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) brings substantial changes to the rules around personal data and its use. To ensure effective compliance, your organisation needs to have managers who understand the GDPR’s requirements and are equipped to plan, implement and maintain a compliance programme. In some instances, your organisation may also be required to appoint a suitably qualified and trained data protection officer (DPO).
