Why do organisations have to provide this type of training?
Data protection legislation (e.g. the UK General Data Protection Regulation along with the Data Protection Act 2018) requires that an organisation does ‘everything in its power’ to ensure that data is kept safe. That said, there is an implied legal requirement to ensure that they train their employees in data protection.
Failure to train employees is considered negligent, especially if this results in any form of a data breach where the data protection regulator becomes involved.
