PECR training.
Are you up to date?

PECR is a law that governs how businesses are allowed to market to customers using electronic technology. The law is wide-reaching as it covers all industries and is applicable across the board. Breaches of PECR can leave company directors personally liable for fines of up to £500,000 per breach. The law is applicable across the EU and the UK.

PECR compliance is just as important as GDPR. It applies to companies that conduct phone, email or text marketing, or even have cookies on their website. PECR applies even if you aren’t processing personal data, so many more businesses are covered but most aren’t getting it right. Failure to comply can lead to some pretty steep fines.

PECR: Getting to Grips covers the expensive lessons businesses have learned. The course sits alongside our GDPR training options and is a great specialist refresher course for those who need to know.
