GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) – 1 Day Awareness Program



Course Overview

The dramatic increase in the use of personal information — and the associated risks — has resulted in the introduction of global data protection regulations by European Parliament and European Council in April 2016. This course provides an understanding of new and wide-reaching requirements from the General Data Protection Regulation and those rules relevant for businesses, as well as employees’ responsibilities for protecting personal information.
