Every business that collects and handles personal data has to comply with the law. In May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) added extra responsibilities to the Data Protection Act 1998.

These changes relate to obtaining consent to collect personal data, the right to be forgotten and the appointment of a Data Protection Officer.

All affected businesses are now expected to update their data handling processes to make sure they continue to adhere to legal requirements.

This online GDPR course has been created by a qualified finance professional, who will help you to understand what changes you need to make, and how.
