GDPR comes into force in May 2018 – prepare your staff now

  • The risk to your organisation – the Information Commissioner reports that two thirds of data breaches are down to mistakes and oversights by staff.
  • Staff awareness is your best defence – the Data Security range offers a choice of online training and handy reference booklets designed to make your staff aware of the part they have to play in keeping your firm’s data safe.

How can you protect your firm?

Treat your data as a valuable asset

Your organisation must have policies and procedures for handling client’s personal information securely in all formats, but that’s only any help if your staff understand the importance of following those procedures.

Make your employees aware of the risks

If a data breach should occur, the question inevitably arises: “What were you doing to guard against it?” The Data Security range enables you to show you’ve made your employees aware of the risks and their personal obligations.

Online Data Security Training

A complete e-learning programme – with automatically generated training records, competence assessments, and useful monitoring tools; the Training on Record online course offers a convenient and cost-effective way to enhance awareness and reduce the risks to your firm.
