Introduction to GDPR Online Training

Introduction to GDPR Online Training

The Europe Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became enforceable by law on 25th May 2018.

The GDPR applies to all businesses, regardless of location, that handle the personal data of EU residents.

The GDPR requires businesses to follow certain protocols to protect an individual’s personal data and gives individuals the power to decide how their data is used.

It is important that your team are aware of how the GDPR affects the way they do their job, such as taking payments, arranging marketing or interacting with customers.

This course covers the fundamentals of the GDPR and how it applies to every day working life.

With real-life examples and an interactive format, your team will find it easy to learn about the GDPR and apply good data practices to their work.
