The Challenge

Virtually all organisations process or store commercially and personally sensitive information.

All employees who interact with that information need to understand their responsibilities and the associated risks. Education is one of the best deterrents against the phishing attacks that cybercriminals commonly use to scam their victims or to compromise their systems and cause a data breach.

Responsibility and accountability under the GDPR extends to your staff and their need to be aware of the risks involved in processing personal data and how to mitigate those risks.

The Service

GDPR awareness training educates your workforce to help minimise the risk of leakage of confidential and sensitive information.

Ensuring your employees understand corporate policies and procedures as well as staying abreast of the latest data protection issues is an important element of your data protection compliance.

Data protection compliance is everybody’s responsibility, not just your compliance department. Employees play a major part in protecting your business and critical information against threats and data breaches.

BH Consulting provide bespoke, on-site and online training courses from compliance training for in-house compliance teams, to board-level briefings and general GDPR programmes. We can tailor these training programmes for certain organisation functions such as GDPR for Marketing, HR, contract specialists and IT professionals.

We design our programmes to suit an organisation’s size, profile and skill level of expertise in areas such as;

  • GDPR Background, History and What it Means
  • Key Definitions
  • 6 Principles of Data Protection
  • Legal basis for processing data
  • Data Subject Rights
  • Data Controller and Data Processor Responsibilities
  • Policies and Procedures required to meet the GDPR
  • Data Security:

    • How to prevent data breaches
    • What to do if we have a data breach

Training and awareness can be one of the most cost-effective investments in your GDPR compliance. Technical controls can mitigate many threats, but without adequate GDPR training and awareness, your organisation can still be open to compromise and data breaches through the behaviour of your staff.

The Benefits

  • Lessen the occurrence of data breaches due to human error
  • Prevent leakage of confidential information resulting in tarnishing your organisation’s reputation
  • Document your compliance activities for possible data breaches or audits
