The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replacing the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC will come into force in May 2018 and applies to any organisation collecting or processing data on individuals living in the European Union.
In order to become GDPR compliant, companies must take several technical measures in order to protect the personal data they collect and process, but they will also need to take several organisational measures, including GDPR employees training.
soLearn is the Ultimate Knowledge Management Solution that can help with EU GDPR knowledge retention and compliance management.
If your staff have already been trained, soLearn will check the level of knowledge retention so you can measure the:
- training efficiency and your ROI
- risk of a security breach
- GDPR compliance level.
With soLearn you will not only check your staff’s knowledge, but you will also strengthen it. For example, if a person gives a wrong answer, the soLearn intelligent system will send them a document that directs them to relevant reading material to enable them to refresh their knowledge and facilitate them providing a correct answer for the future.

If your staff have not been GDPR trained, soLearn helps you verify the level of their knowledge about collecting and processing personal data so that you know what type of training they will need to have. You eliminate unnecessary expenses and invest only where it is needed.
There is no doubt that a key factor of any organisation’s GDPR compliance framework is staff training and awareness.
There will be two levels of fines for non-compliance from 25th of May 2018:
- Up to €10 million or 2% of the company’s global annual turnover of the previous financial year, whichever is higher (infringements of organisations obligations - generic data breaches?)
- Up to €20 million or 4% of the company’s global annual turnover of the previous financial year, whichever is higher. (infringements of an individual’s privacy rights)
The potential fines are substantial and a good reason for companies to ensure their staff have an understanding of the compliance requirements under the new regulation.
Don’t risk it, Test it!
