GDPR Training

The General Data Protection Regulations requires businesses to handle private data appropriately, else face financial penalty. Phoenix’s GDPR training educates employees on how to properly handle data in line with these regulations.

What is Phoenix's GDPR Training?

Phoenix's GDPR Training provides an in-depth guide to data protection laws in the UK for business managers and leaders, covering the various laws enforced in the UK, as well as the consequences of not following them.

Businesses have a requirement to operate according to these laws, taking customer privacy seriously and maintaining their rights to access their information and decide how it is collected, stored and destroyed. By following GDPR practices properly, businesses can establish trust with their customers and clients. Failure to comply can result in serious financial penalties, including up to €20 million (about £18 million) or 4% of the company’s global annual turnover of the previous financial year, whichever is higher. 

By providing your managers and business leaders with Phoenix’s GDPR training, you are ensuring they understand GDPR and how data should be managed, regardless of your industry, protecting your business from financial penalty and prosecution.
