Benefits of GDPR Training
Businesses must ensure they are taking a considered approach to data security and train all employees. Even if a business has appropriate organization and security measures in place their employees could accidentally bring potential data security or accidentally ignore a subject access request.
GDPR needs to be consistent and not treated as a one-off project. Your business needs to stay up to speed with annual training and ensure your business knows how GDPR will impact your employees and your customers. Fines can be imposed therefore your business needs to assess the cost of implementation versus a potential fine.
