Many organisations are scrambling to get ready for compliance with GDPR regulations coming into force May 2018. Bolt Learning, has partnered with Edinburgh-based GDPR consultancy Mercurytide, to provide the ultimate GDPR consultancy and training solution for Scottish companies.
“Most IT teams will be aware of the impending changes to data protection, but many organisations are not aware that it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure all members of staff understand the legislation, and comply with mandatory training requirements” explains Katie Jenkins, our Head of Customer Proposition at Bolt Learning.
Bolt Learning and Mercurytide have launched two interactive, online training modules, to provide all employees, regardless of their level of involvement with GDPR, with critical training.
“The bite-size modules are easily distributed via email and completed online, on any device, meaning staff can do them at a time and place convenient to them. On completion, the organisation also has documentation to demonstrate one of the GDPR compliance obligations” comments Katie.
The modules have already proven popular; “Bolt’s training on GDPR was not only clear and concise but also stimulating and interesting. We’re now in a much better place to deal with the changes coming into force in May” comments Jane Wylie-Roberts, MD, Glasgow-based Stafffinders
Remember! If found to be in breach of the new regulations, a business can be fined up to €20million. It is essential that your staff are aware and educated appropriately.
