FAQs about eLearning courses on data protection

How often should data protection training be held at the company?

Apart from the obligation to train employees in data protection, there is no legal requirement as to how often this should take place. Offering training courses at regular intervals is recommended. One of the main tasks of your internal or external data protection officer is, for example, to organize training courses.

How is online course participation documented, e.g., for the authorities?

Who administers the online courses?

A company employee can go on the platform and issue invitations to participate in online data protection courses.

How long is an invitation to participate in an online course valid?
