The importance to know how to protect a company and seafarer’s data is a triggered for PT. EBU to conduct GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Training, as a program to educate and improve self-awareness of EBU Staff with data which related with company policy.

The training which has been held on December 21st, 2018 with BSI (British Standards Institution) as a trainer. They provide us with one module which consist of background, scope, consent (agreement), data subject, data process, risk, Data Protection Officer (DPO) and all related to GDPR. They trained us to know about the differences of data, who are responsible with data, how to assess the risk of data and how to maintain (process and control) the data. There was a study case that should have to be solved by all participants in order to have a deep knowledge about GDPR with discuss session during the training. The result of the training is staff can understand the main terms, definitions, and concepts related to GDPR, also they can implement it to their daily work with proper protection.

However the GDPR has been implemented in Europe only, but it is very important and good to know for us to understand the GDPR due to the main goal is to give the positive impact on data protection in the digital economy era in recent years, it also might be an effect for online business.
