Course Introduction

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the EU legislation put in place to protect people’s personal information. Its aims are simple – to ensure that data held about individuals is used fairly and lawfully.

Data protection regulations apply to processing carried out by organisations operating within the EU, and also to organisations outside the EU which offer goods or services to individuals in the EU.

Although everyone within an organisation should be aware of and follow the GDPR regulations, people in more senior rules have an important role to play. This requires an in-depth understanding of the data regulations and the ability to identify where breaches may be taking place and to help ensure any gaps are closed.

This e-learning course provides the learner with an in-depth understanding of GDPR, giving clarity around what is needed to ensure compliance, as well as providing support material to guide the organisation through the compliance process.

With this online learning, your learners will be taken through General Data Protection Regulations step-by-step, ensuring they have a full understanding of what is required of the organisation, themselves and the people that work for them.
