This course will help you discover how GDPR extends the data rights of individuals and requires organisations to protect personal data.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) extends the data rights of individuals and requires organisations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data. Since 1998, the UK’s data protection laws have been governed by the Data Protection Act. However, since then, the process of collecting data has become easier and more sophisticated, and people’s personal data is used everywhere.

This course will provide you with an overview of the GDPR and is a great way to understand GDPR and what it means to you and your role.

Members gain 1 CIOB CPD points when you reflect on the ethical aspects of your learning from this activity.
