GDPR for business professionals

Guarding against fines

A failure to comply with GDPR risks a fine of €20 million. And 80% of organisations do not believe they are fully compliant.

The risks are even greater with much of the workforce currently working from home.

The ready-made assessment can test knowledge of staff from a wide range of functions that regularly use personal data and those that manage the data policy. It can also measure the effectiveness of GDPR training. The assessment can demonstrate to regulators that robust measures have been taken.

The test asks the participant to answer 25 multiple choice, multiple response and matching questions within 45 minutes.

At the end of the assessment, the participant is provided with overall score, topic score and a detailed question level feedback on incorrect answers, giving the correct answer. Managers can run reports to view performance across the organisation. The data are instantly compiled and easy to analyze.

Guarding against risk and building trust

Identifying areas of risk

The analysis of the results will highlight areas of risk among teams and business functions.  Appropriate action can be taken.

Demonstrating compliance

In the event of a breach, national regulators have discretion over fines. Organisations must demonstrate in their defense that robust measures have been taken.

Building trust and protecting reputation

Organisations must demonstrate to consumers, customers and stakeholders that they care about how personal data are used.

Protecting profits

GDPR breaches can result in a fine of €20 million or 4% of annual global turnover – whichever is higher.

Robust assessments to measure GDPR knowledge

A global perspective

The assessment helps those who have responsibility for data management within organisation to get a clear picture of how their personnel are managing personal data across the entire organisation.

Targeting training

The assessment identifies knowledge gaps, helping organisations to identify specific topics to cover in upcoming training.

Equipping consultants

Data consultants can use the test to help their customers identify strengths and weaknesses and to take appropriate action.

Fully independent

Questionmark does not offer training based on the results, so its assessments are completely independent.

Core characteristics

Robust assessments

The assessment has been developed by Questionmark legal team and assessment experts and is valid, fair and defensible.

Detailed feedback

GDPR for business professionals gives detailed feedback on anything people get wrong, providing areas where training is required.

Organisation-wide insight

Organisations can run reports to view performance across teams.


The assessment can be adapted by organisations that want to add their own questions for their specific needs.

Random question selection

The assessment uses random selection so each person taking the test gets a slightly different sequence of questions, so organisations can test people again to measure knowledge later.

Integrated into the platform

For existing customers, GDPR for business professionals will run on the repository in their Questionmark platform.

Easy to use

For new customers, we will create a Questionmark area for you that contains the GDPR for business professionals assessment and provides assistance for you to use the test.
