Organizations should consider the following factors when determining the frequency of GDPR training:
- The size and complexity of the organization
- The type of data processed and the level of risk it poses to individuals
- Changes to the organization’s operations or processes
- Changes to the regulation

Organizations should determine how often should GDPR training be done based on their specific circumstances. For example, HR and marketing should receive specific training more frequently than employees less in contact with personal data.
