GDPR Awareness

Course Overview - Watch the Trailer

On the 25th May 2018, efforts to enforce the General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR) began. Although many businesses seeking to comply worked hard to meet the date, undertakings to educate and raise awareness will, by necessity, continue for many years to come.

This short course offers the basic concepts and ideas behind the GDPR, and has been designed to brief decision-makers with enough knowledge to continue the conversation in their own organizations.

Take your first step in preparing for the GDPR with Good e-Learning.

Why you should take this course:

For those unaware, the GDPR puts the data collected about you back in your hands, and defends your fundamental right to privacy. Prior to the GDPR, the emphasis was on protecting data. Now, it is on protecting the individual. This moves data protection responsibilities out to a field wider than just data security experts and the IT department; Marketing and Sales, IT and HR, even the boardroom.

Not only has adapting to GDPR proved a major hurdle for organizations across the world, but the consequences of failing to achieve GDPR can be disastrous, both financially and in terms of customer reputation. While the changes are mandatory, exactly how to go about them has left thousands of companies completely puzzled!

Step one in preparing for the GDPR is, according to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), to raise you and your organization’s awareness of the regulation.
