GDPR Awareness

Course Overview - Watch the Trailer

On the 25th May 2018, efforts to enforce the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) began. Although many businesses seeking to comply worked hard to meet the deadline, undertakings to educate and raise awareness will, by necessity, continue for many years to come. Organizations and institutions need to make themselves acutely aware of what the GDPR entails, as well as the penalties for being non-compliant.

This short course covers the basic concepts and ideas behind the GDPR and has been designed to provide decision-makers with enough knowledge to continue the conversation on compliance 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 who are 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 IT departments; marketing, sales, HR, accounting and even the boardroom all need to follow the regulations.

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. This course offers a perfect first step to do just that!
