Did you know that all companies are responsible under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 for providing health and safety training and information to employees to ensure they are not injured or made ill by the work they do?

Did you also know that the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act in May 2018 requires companies to record and monitor data protection training for employees and that this is a vital aspect of evidencing that a company is complying with data protection law in the UK?

When you report a data breach to the ICO and file a report, you are specifically asked if the staff involved in the breach have received data protection training in the last 24 months?

  • If the answer is yes – how do you prove it?
  • If the answer is no – what happens then?

Do you have the evidence that your employees have been trained?

Auditel provides an easy, cost-effective solution to ensure your business can demonstrate compliance with these employment obligations.
