By May 25, 2018, all companies that process EU residents’ data (even those based outside Europe) must comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Ignoring the GDPR or not being fully compliant could cost a lot: Fines are up to 4% of the organization’s annual global turnover or €20 million (approximately $21.3 million) – whichever is the greater.
Skilled professionals wanted
To avoid being caught unprepared, companies have already started hiring skilled professionals or enrolling their technical staff on professional training courses to build their knowledge of the requirements of the new regulation.
Don’t forget non-technical staff
As much as technical staff should be aware of the new GDPR principles, so should non-technical employees who handle and process EU residents’ personal data. Enrolling the entire workforce on training courses is expensive, time-consuming and disruptive. A cost-effective, and time-saving method of training all staff comes in the form of eLearning courses.
In particular, the GDPR Staff Awareness E-learning Course
Web-delivered, available anytime from anywhere with an internet connection, and easily customizable, this brand new eLearning course provides all your non-technical staff with a complete introduction to the GDPR’s principles, roles, responsibilities, and processes.
