Midshore have developed an awareness training solution suitable for all members of staff of any ability, the aim of the training is to give you a basic understanding of data protection laws in Guernsey and the upcoming changes.

Whilst the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been pending its implementation date (May 25th 2018) since April 2016, awareness has struggled to spread throughout most industries within the island of its own law the General Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law, 2017.
