  • 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?

    This online course is relevant to everyone as we’re all affected by GDPR in some way. However, it provides essential learning for companies and businesses that deal with people’s information regularly. General Data Protection Regulation is a fantastic introductory course for people that are new to data protection and is an ideal refresher for employers. General Data Protection Regulation is also useful to people who are familiar with the old EU data framework that have yet to become familiar with the 2018 regulation.  

    What will you get from this course?

    You will have an awareness of GDPR so that you’re able to ensure your customers’ and employees’ privacy by keeping their information secure. From an individual’s rights to subject access requests, General Data Protection Regulation covers the essentials of GDPR so that you know exactly how you and your business fit within the law and can be compliant with it.

The best boost for anyone

thoroughly enjoyed this course. There was no rush and I could take it at my own time. I am visually impaired and this has boosted my confidence immensely. I had no trouble with any of the modules. Mostly it was my not reading the question properly, so that is why I made the mistake I did. Thank you for the chance to prove myself as a person in my own right. When people know you have a disabilit...

Confidence Booster

I was given Criminology for beginners course as a Christmas present, would never have thought of doing it myself but I have enjoyed it so much. It was so easy to do and very hard to put down. It’s like reading a good book then having a test on it. There is no pressure, no tutor hurrying you up and no time limits on the tests, just how learning should be. The written report I received after the ...
