Course of the week: General Data Protection Regulation
14 August 2017
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will be implemented in the UK in May 2018, updates the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA). The changes place greater obligations on organisations, with potential fines for breaches as high as €20 million or 4% of global turnover. Organisations need to act now to prepare for the potential changes to their systems and procedures. This course is designed to ensure that delegates understand how the current requirements will change.
Payroll and HR data, procedures and systems will be directly affected, including where third party software or service providers are involved.
The general data protection regulations course helps delegates understand and prepare for the changes, including how they affect payroll and HR functions, so that they can help their organisations become fully compliant by May 2018.
On completion, delegates should:
- Understand the principles of the DPA and GDPR
- Understand the key terms of the DPA and GDPR
- Appreciate the accountability and governance requirements of the GDPR
- Understand how the changes apply to payroll and HR, in particular
- Be able to prepare their organisation for the changes
