How Should HR Address GDPR Training?

According to IT Governance's 2017 GDPR Report, less than 10% of organizations have provided GDPR staff awareness training to all employees.

The report also showed that only 53% of organizations are planning to provide GDPR staff awareness training in the future. General training on how to protect personal data should be rolled out to all employees, but those in more sensitive job roles or with more privileged access to data, such as HR, should be given more dedicated training. For example, those employees that manage client data should have specific guidance compared to those handling internal employee data. Even more, HR and legal teams should ensure that their privacy policy is adopted and followed by all employees, including managers.
