This new eLearning programme is part of a series of training, including the 'Fundamentals of GDPR'. It is relevant to all staff who process personal data in their everyday work, in enhancing their knowledge of data protection.

It has been designed to provide SAR Decision Makers with the practical skills, critical thinking strategies and relevant knowledge to process data requests and the GDPR and the considerations when processing SAR requests.

The eLearning programme is organized in four distinct sections, to aid the learner, followed by a separate Assessment:

  1. Data subject rights
  2. Processing of SARs
  3. Restrictions fundamentals
  4. SAR scenarios

It will take approximately 1 hour to complete and includes assessments and ‘extend my learning’ pieces for those who wish to undertake further learning or who want practical activities to help transfer the learning into their local area of work.

This programme will support all HSE staff who are involved in the release of personal data as part of their role. Learners will gain valuable knowledge and skills on the application of the provisions of Data Protection Acts and the GDPR to both straightforward and complex requests, by working through exercises and examples on realistic scenarios in the module.
