About This Course

General Data Protection Regulation explores the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that came into force in May 2018 to replace the existing EU Data Protection Directive framework. With new regulation came a big change in how personal data is processed by businesses and services across the globe. That’s why this online course has been created: to guide you through the GDPR and how it affects your business. General Data Protection Regulation teaches you how to comply with the new GDPR so that you’re on top of your data security game. 

Who is this course for?
