Why is it important to keep my employees informed?

Your employees are also your data subjects - they must be informed of their rights. Your employees will most likely, support your organisation during the implementation and maintenance of your data protection program. Being aware of their rights as data subjects should make it easier for them to understand their roles in supporting your data protection program. HR staff, for example must be sensitized to the use a d protection of sensitive data. Relevant employees must know to how to spot and respond to a subject access request or to recognise and report an incident that could potentially become a data breach.  Employees making use of your digital systems must be informed of the boundaries of what you consider as 'acceptable use' of your systems and they must always remain aware of the threats within cyber security.
