Training is an important part of how organisations comply with their data protection obligations. It helps individuals understand their responsibilities when working for an organisation and handling personal data. Effective training should help to prevent data security breaches or misuse of personal data as well as to demonstrate an organisation's commitment to accountability – a key requirement under the GDPR.
The Data Privacy Team at Bates Wells can provide training for you and your organisation. We regularly provide training on all aspects of the GDPR and e-privacy rules. This can be training in person to small or large groups or remotely (where technology permits). Please see below for more information about our standard training packages.
One of the central objectives behind the GDPR is to encourage a privacy focused culture. Cultures don’t typically change overnight – education and training are critical components to help individuals understand and implement change within their organisations. The GDPR requires controllers to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to demonstrate that their data processing meets the requirements of the GDPR. Training is a crucial way of implementing these measures and demonstrating that they are in place.
Our standard training packages
We offer two different ‘off the peg’ online training packages for organisations. These are standard training packages which will reflect current law. If you are seeking a more tailored training approach for your organisation’s needs, please contact us directly. Bespoke training can focus on specific issues e.g. use of children’s data.
All our standard training packages are currently provided online by a member of the Bates Wells Data Privacy team. They include the topics covered below and time for questions and answers.
