Data Protection in the Irish Workplace

About this course

The Data Protection Commission (DPC) advises it is good practice to provide all staff with data protection training on or shortly after starting employment. 

Legal Island’s Data Protection in the Workplace eLearning course is tailored specifically to provide all your employees with comprehensive training and you with an evidence trail for the DPC, should a data breach occur.

 

What is GDPR?  

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the biggest development in data protection legislation in decades. In essence, it is designed to bring controls on how organisations process personal data into line with 21st-century developments, like social media, e-commerce, mobile data and the cloud.

Fines of up to €20m or 4% of your global turnover could be imposed. If you have not prepared for the GDPR you will be exposing your organisation to those massive fines and the public relations nightmare that is sure to follow. Your reputation could be ruined. The good news is even though the GDPR deadline date has passed, it's not too late to become compliant.

You can make your systems and contracts GDPR compliant and you can bring your workforce up to date with all staff training. Data protection compliance training reduces the likelihood of data breaches at work and significantly strengthens your defence when dealing with the DPC.

 

Why is Data Protection compliance training important?

Today’s technology is becoming increasingly more advanced which makes computer systems harder to penetrate. Hackers now rely heavily on human error.

Training is essential as an employee must comply with the new law and understand the risks to the organisation’s reputation, the fines the organisation may face and their own personal risk of disciplinary action or even dismissal if they are involved in a data breach.

Raising your employee’s awareness through data protection eLearning training will help ensure compliance with the principles of GDPR, and reduce the likelihood of data breaches caused by human error.

 

Who needs Data Protection training?

In a recent report, Managing Insider Risk through Training & Culture, data protection and privacy training professionals stated that their employees are their weakest link when it comes to information security. The DPC advises it is good practice to provide all staff with data protection training on or shortly after starting employment with regular refresher updates throughout their employment.
