Xcina Consulting, part of the AIM listed, digital, operational and regulatory resilience company, Shearwater Group plc, has launched its latest White Paper, highlighting guidance on being General Data Protection Regulatory (GDPR) ready, prior to the 25 May 2018 deadline.
Xcina works closely with the London Digital Security Centre and supports organisations in all sectors, providing digital, operational and regulatory transformation solutions and services to ensure resilience in an ever-changing digital world. The White Paper illustrates how people are at the centre of GDPR and that training, as well as awareness, are pivotal to being GDPR ready.
The White Paper further details how Xcina Consulting, alongside LiMETOOLS, has developed a GDPR educational e-learning training tool underpinned by workplace behavioural psychology. The tool uses an unusual mix of ‘novella’ fictional soap drama scenarios; animations; weighted scoring quiz games; and video documentary ‘short bites’, produced to broadcast compliance standards.
The tools’ software captures trainees’ data, enabling management to measure staff performance and departmental or regional comparison scoring, thus ensuring organisations are not penalised by the Regulator.
Xcina Consulting’s Northern based Business Development Director, Kevin Porter, said: “This White Paper acts as a key reference for organisations, regardless of size and sector, highlighting the importance of people in helping a company become GDPR ready.
“Training and awareness are at the heart of GDPR readiness and alongside LiMETOOLS, Xcina Consulting has spent the last six months developing e-learning training packages. There is a Basics package for all staff and specific operational packages for HR, IT, Legal, Not-for-Profit and Marketing/PR practitioners. There is also an Executive tool for senior management.”
