General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Training

GDPR TrainingThese EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) training courses are aimed at almost all professionals who work in health, adult care or the third sector. From May 25th 2018, anyone who handles the personal data of an EU citizen (whether a service user, staff member, supplier or someone else) will be required to ensure that their data protection and cybersecurity processes meet certified EU standards. Professionals who are likely to fall under the GDPR's remit include general practitioners (GPs), medical administrators, board or management staff and more, while training for nurses is also advisable. GDPR training includes topics such as risk assessment and security awarness.

These certified EU General Data Protection Regulation and information security courses can be undertaken by professionals from a range of organisations including the National Health Service (NHS), private medical providers, primary care providers, research institutions and more.

Usually, an information governance course focusing on General Data Protection Regulation skills will cover a range of topics including the right to erasure, changes to data consent, and what to do in the event of a data breach. The learning path of some courses cover one specific area of the GDPR, while others provide a more holistic overview. Some of these courses operate in online, e-learning environments, meaning participants can save time and resources by learning in a place that works best for them.

These courses are suitable both for those who have never been required to protect data before and need a GDPR foundation programme so that they can learn from scratch, as well as for those who have managed data before and either want to refresh their skills or learn more about how the GDPR affects their data management responsibilities.

We suggest that you use a certified GDPR practitioner for your training needs in order to ensure that you receive a rigorous and accurate training course and to ensure you gain the correct skills you need to protect data. You can find training for various learning paths, from basic introductions to GDPR practitioner training courses.

Guidelines and Resources

Official guidance on the GDPR has been released by the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) here in the UK, and it helpfully explains the GDPR's main concepts. These include the data rights conferred to individuals under the Regulation as well as tips on what constitutes legal data processing. It contains both detailed information as well as resources providing practical help, such as a toolkit for organisations to use.

The GDPR information portal contains a number of helpful documents such as an overview of what will change, a frequently asked questions list, and a collection of helpful summaries explaining the point of each of the GDPR's 11 articles.

Those working in specific sectors, especially those which deal with particularly sensitive data on a regular basis, can take advantage of guidelines released by teams like NHS Digital. This site provides information on a range of specific aspects of the GDPR's requirements, including the Data Protection Officer's role as well as specific guidance for certain professionals like GPs.

And the Skills for Care guidance, meanwhile, touches on how processes like Subject Access Requests can be handled correctly under the GDPR in sensitive care environments.
