General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Protecting personal data

The standard of privacy and security of personal information has never been higher. Meeting your General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) obligations isn’t just a matter of compliance, it’s a matter of consumer confidence.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) harmonizes privacy law and data processing practice across the EU. But it doesn’t just apply to EU businesses – if you do any business in the EU or collect or use personal information of any individuals located in the EU, you need to comply with the GDPR or you’ll face heavy penalties.

Our GDPR course gives learners a brief background on what the Regulation is as well as a comprehensive run down of what you and your organization need to do to comply. We explain who and what is covered by the law, what constitutes “processing personal data”, what rights individuals have in respect of their own personal data, what you need to do in the event of a data breach incident and more.

“The GDPR regulates more than just the usual private information: name, email address, street address, but also cookies, IP addresses and location information.”
