About this course

Our training course goes beyond that of many other solutions. It provides you and your staff with the required knowledge under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) BUT, and more importantly, it also provides you with the regulatory knowledge and requirements of the UK Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA), which in many cases supersedes the requirements of the GDPR.  This is a key differentiator and essential for UK businesses and their staff.

The key learning objectives are:

  • To be able to summarise the requirements of the UK DPA and GDPR principles for organisations
  • To be able to explain the individual rights outlined in the regulations
  • To be able to take basic precautions at work to keep personal data safe
  • To be able to know when to report a personal data breach

Who Should Take This Course?

This course should be taken by all employees to ensure that they have a fundamental understanding of the UK DPA and GDPR. Even if you and your staff have previously undertaken GDPR training, we recommend this course, as it has been updated to reflect the latest regulatory requirements under both UK DPA and GDPR. It is suggested that this training should be taken a minimum of annually, to aid compliance within your business.

What Are Our Key Differentiators?

We can help you deliver courses that are engaging, informative, and test the learners’ knowledge and understanding. All of our courses are designed and regularly updated by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), who are familiar with recognised best practices and the associated Legal and Regulatory requirements.

Your teams will be trained on your company’s Academy Learning Management System (LMS).

We can align with your brand guidelines, match logos, colour schemes and site URL. Combined with engaging content learners will get a feel for your company culture from the very start.

The LMS enables you to easily assign courses and training schedules to individuals and teams. Send reminders to those who have not started or finished training and see who has passed or failed courses.

High quality video content ensures learners are more engaged. A simplified layout allows for all staff to quickly take any course. If they are stuck, they can click the help button and our 24/7 support team will help them on their way. You can even add additional classroom notes for those who want more info.

Staff can take the course on a tablet, phone, or laptop providing for a learning strategy designed for the modern workplace. The player allows employees to resume the course where they last left it, so they can work at their own pace on any device.

At the simplest level we build a question bank from the content and test staff knowledge.

Your Academy will automatically provide company branded and accredited certificates to your staff on completion of training.

We provide updates via our quarterly News Bulletins, which help to ensure that content remains relevant; which in-turn helps your staff upskill and remain abreast of emerging threats, industry developments etc.
