In December, a nursing auxiliary was fined for accessing a patient’s medical records without a valid legal reason.  In November a charity employee was prosecuted after he sent spreadsheets containing the information of vulnerable clients to his personal email address without the knowledge of his employer, the Rochdale Connections Trust.

Staff are often a key risk area when it comes to data protection compliance. GDPR will replace the DPA on 25th May 2018. Failure to comply with it could lead to fines of up to 20 million Euros or 4% of global annual turnover (which ever is higher).

All staff need to know about how the law will change and how personal data should be handled. But how do employers do this without staff leaving the office or overspending the training budget?

Enter the Act Now GDPR E Learning Course.This new online training course will give staff basic GDPR knowledge in 1 hour. The target audience is frontline staff, both in the public and private sector, and those who handle personal data on a day-to-day basis who need a basic knowledge of how to comply with GDPR in their role. This includes receptionists, clerical workers, school staff, call handlers, healthcare workers, bank staff etc. etc.

The course consists of two modules in which our data protection experts explain the key messages of GDPR in a simple and jargon free way including:

  • The main GDPR obligations and the new Data Subject rights
  • How to keep personal data safe and secure

Each module is accompanied by a multiple-choice quiz containing 10 randomly generated questions based on the contents of the module. The pass mark is 60% on each quiz. A certificate of successful completion is issued to each participant.

In producing these modules we have had regard to the Information Commissioner’s data protection training checklist.
