general data protection regulation (GDPR) course

Data privacy laws are changing. The way that we collect, handle and store data has changed immensely, however privacy laws have not. That’s why the EU introduced the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to ensure EU citizens’ rights are protected. Protect your business from non-compliance or risk up to 20m Euros in fines. And from May 25th, 2018 it will be enforced, so every business needs to be prepared if they have any customers in the EU.

This is a course that everyone should undertake, showing your employees how to collect and store data better, whilst adhering to new GDPR regulations. It also explores GDPR fundamentals on how your business is processing data, ensuring it’s accurate and only being stored for as long as necessary. It’ll also show what to do to report data breaches and undertake risk assessments. It’s a doozy and is hands down our most requested course ever.

It contains one elearning module (available in SCORM 1.2, 2004 and Tin Can xAPI), 11 animated explainer videos, 5 additional PDF resources, 1 workbook, 1 transcript, as well as a course thumbnail and LMS badge.

New courses are added to our library free of charge every single week to subscribers.

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Protecting data. You’re basically the bodyguard of data. Data is Whitney Houston, and you’re Kevin Costner. I don’t know how far we can go with this metaphor. We don’t want you – spoiler alert – taking a bullet for data. But you do need to keep it safe. Especially now that GDPR is kicking in. If you’ve not heard of it, it stands for General Data Protection Regulation, and it’s the biggest change to data protection law in over 20 years. And you should care about it. Because if you’re not compliant, the penalties are pretty severe. Like, 20 million Euros of severe. But it’s not all doom and gloom. It will be enforced from 25 May 2018 to strengthen EU citizens’ privacy rights, giving them more control, and to help the law be applied consistently across the EU. And it’s not just for EU companies. Any organisation that handles EU citizens’ data is affected. Luckily, this course will give you the details, including definitions, the big changes, best practice and internal checks. So, check it out before it’s too late.
