The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is European legislation replacing the Data Protection Act in May 2018. The basic principles for looking after personal data remain in line with existing principles, but there are stricter standards to adhere to, and increased penalties for non-compliance.
All staff and learners must adhere to the SPS Data Protection Policy and Acceptable Use Policy. The policies will be published here in the upcoming weeks:
- Data Protection Policy
- Acceptable Use Policy for Staff
- Acceptable Use Policy for Learners
Staff and learners are asked to be mindful or potential data breaches at all times. A personal data security breach may come from theft; a deliberate attack on your systems; unauthorised use of your own personal data; or accidental loss or equipment failure.
Should you have any queries relating to GDPR at SPS Training or wish to report a data breach or potential data breach please contact the SPS Data Protection Officer:
Data Protection Officer (DPO)
Mehul Shah, Director
Breaches can occur at any time; therefore, it may not always be possible to reach the DPO so any opportunity to contain the breach should be taken immediately. Examples of this include removing a webpage; informing unauthorised recipients of an email to delete it and not share it further; disconnect your device from any the SPS network; informing Technical Services staff or your line manager.
