For GDPR training for your management and staff, Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) is here to help

The GDPR is the set of laws that cover data protection and privacy, and it must be adhered to by every organisation, irrespective of size or sector. The penalties for breaching the terms of the regulation are extremely serious, and fines of up to €20m or 4% of annual turnover (whichever is the higher) can be imposed by the Information Commission’s Office.

As anyone in your organisation could potentially be the source of a damaging data breach, it is therefore obvious that everyone needs to undergo training to ensure that they understand the risks, and the steps they can take to maintain compliance.

Here at Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) we can provide GDPR awareness training for staff and management, ensuring that you are always fully compliant, as well as ongoing monitoring of your systems, processes and procedures to protect you and your customers.

The training is always customised to your specific circumstances but will typically include:

  • Data Protection Act 1998 - What it covers, how to understand it and your rights and responsibilities
  • HR - data protection issues and recruiting staff, references for employee, medical and criminal records
  • Marketing - Marketing whilst staying compliant
  • Consent - the various types of consent to avoid penalties
  • Social media - recognising the dangers in social media
  • Data Protection Officers - what a DPO does (if you need one).

At VIHS, we’re here to provide that necessary legal insight, as and when you need it, and it’s a totally flexible service that has been designed to meet your needs and obligations.

Just some feedback from my managers on the GDPR training you did last week: everyone agreed that it was extremely useful, and we all learned a great deal about the new laws and the risks we were taking by not fully embracing them. Suffice to say, steps have now been taken to address the action points you raised, and we would like you to work with us on a regular basis to ensure that we maintain our compliance. Thank you again.
