GDPR Action & Implementation eLearning
The General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR) came into effect on the 25th May 2018. At its heart is our fundamental right to privacy, making all the data collected about us ours to control. This renders the processing of our data by others unlawful by default, and only made lawful by adhering to some stringent criteria or legal avenues.
This course is delivered in cooperation with Good e-Learning, see all courses from Good e-Lerning here.
An awareness of the GDPR will be necessary for anyone who comes into contact with personal data in their day-to-day activities. It will be especially relevant to marketing, sales, HR and IT departments in businesses both big and small. Indeed anyone looking to understand the basics of the GDPR will find that this course covers what they need to know, as well as identifying concrete first steps in getting ready for the regulation.
Why you should take this course:
We are used to data protection being the realm of digital security experts, encryption and the IT department. The GDPR places the responsibility of privacy squarely in the hands of everyone in the organisation. From Marketing and Sales, IT and HR, all the way up to the boardroom.
The reach will also be global, not just restricted to the European Economic Area. Wherever you are in the world, if you are collecting or processing data on anyone in the EU, you will need a strategy. And that’s not just EU citizens, but anyone located in the EU, including travelling on business and tourists, regardless of their nationality or residence.
Even though the consequences for businesses are profound and far-reaching, a recent YouGov survey revealed that over 70% of businesses have yet to start preparing for the GDPR.
