The organizational effort to ensure and verify that all employees involved with data processing are familiar with the current state of the legislation can quickly become overwhelming for the data protection officer. Online data protection and IT security training courses assist in this process because every employee can learn independently and at his or her own pace. The respective supervisor can also monitor the progress of the employee training.
