How much will getting it wrong cost you?
Non-compliance with data privacy laws like GDPR can be costly. Under Part 6 of UK GDPR, a fine can be issued of up to £17.5 million or up to 4% of total global turnover whichever is higher.
Most fines fall down to human error. Often a result of a misunderstanding or simply forgetting how the rules work. Effective training can greatly reduce this risk.

Common questions about GDPR refresher training
GDPR refresher training is recommended for all employees who process personal data as part of their role. This definition is likely to have a wide scope, typically accounting for up to 90% of a company’s workforce. This is because the definition of “personal data” and “processing” under UK GDPR and EU GDPR is broad. The personal data of customers, suppliers, employees and any other identifiable individuals must be protected under GDPR.
GDPR refresher training should be completed 1-2 times per year. This is because while the legal text of UK GDPR & EU GDPR has not changed since they were first brought into force, court cases, guidance and enforcement action have effectively changed the meaning of GDPR since it was brought into force.
You may decide that a more frequent schedule is appropriate if the role concerned involves a lot of personal data processing for example a call centre role, a marketing & sales position, or HR position.
The ICO’s accountability framework outlines specifically in relation to refresher training:
“Your staff receive induction & refresher training, regardless of how long they will be working for your organisation, their contractual status or grade.”
This refresher training course is appropriate for all staff. It’s engaging so staff pay attention and concise so they can keep their focus on their core responsibilities.
“Your staff complete refresher training at appropriate intervals.”
The training is frequently updated so learners can return at a later date and find new content to learn from. This way they can keep up with the latest developments in GDPR.
