Course Overview

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) online eLearning training course will look at how the new regulations replace the UK data protection act and the EU data protection directive.

Importantly, the GDPR eLearning course will show how the regulations will affect both organisations in the EU and organisations outside of the EU that handle personal EU data of EU citizens.
As you’d expect the GDPR eLearning course includes information on the new severe penalties and fines for non-compliance as well as the role of the ICO and how they regulate.
