The General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR) comes into effect on the 25th May 2018! Did you know that organizations who are found to be non-compliant could face charges of up to €20,000,000 EUR or 4% of global turnover?
Although many businesses seeking to comply will have worked hard to meet this date, undertakings to educate and raise awareness will, by necessity, continue for many years afterward.
We have created a short Awareness course which offers the basic concepts and ideas behind the GDPR, and has been designed to brief decision-makers with enough knowledge to continue the conversation in their own organizations.
Why you Should Take This Course
Step one in preparing for the GDPR is, according to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), to raise you and your organization’s awareness of the regulation.
This GDPR Awareness course is made up of 8 lessons. The course is accessed online, giving you the opportunity to study at your own pace, and in your preferred location. It has been specifically built to be viewed on multiple devices. Features include text and video, and brief quizzes to check your knowledge.
The course puts the ‘legalese’ of the GDPR’s Articles and Recitals into accessible and transparent language, and offers practical first steps to take along the road of GDPR compliance.
Each Lesson concludes with a brief knowledge check too help the learner consolidate their knowledge. The questions are a combination of true or false, complete the sentence, sorting exercises and the occasional scenario.
Feedback is given with each answer to help the learner work through the topics. A certificate of completion is presented at the conclusion of the course.
