This blog is about preparing for GDPR and looking at what training is actually needed. At Logicearth, we offer a range of Compliance solutions, including GDPR, Anti-money laundering, Information security awareness and more. Take sneak peak at our GDPR course or see here for a full list of our engaging compliance courses – they are easy to make available, video-based and practical.

Embracing GDPR and getting the training just right

We’ve just released our GDPR compliance course – and it is a good one. If you live on planet earth, then GDPR will impact you. It is good to know your data rights, and if you work with data (most of us do!), it is even better to know your responsibilities.

We live in an increasingly digital world, with more and more data circulating about all of us. Our most sensitive and personal information is at the mercy of people and organisations that we trust to do the right thing. But GDPR protects that trust even more; for data protection violations – fines have increased to €20 million or 4% of turnover. You can try our interactive GDPR course for free here. 

Data protection is about protecting YOU

The UK’s Information Commissioners Office have a useful set of questions to help you assess your personal risk.
