A quote from the data protection commission 19th June 2018 

How do you as a data controller ensure compliance with the law?

You must make yourself aware of your data protection responsibilities, in particular, to process personal data fairly. You should ensure that your staff are made aware of their responsibilities through appropriate induction training with refresher training as necessary and the availability of an internal data protection policy that is relevant to the personal data held by you.
