About this Course

Overview

Data protection and data breach notification are no longer a media relations issue or opportunistic PR choice: It is law, with fines amounting up to 4% of the organization’s worldwide turnover. Not complying to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) can lead to a financial drain equal to breaking EU Competition Law; a devastating amount for any business. The GDPR affects almost every business that collects or handles the personal data of any European citizen.

Privacy laws & regulations (including GDPR) are increasingly affecting all companies, and Data Protection Authorities are increasingly monitoring their compliance. It is therefore important that your organization deals with this in the right way. In this course, you will receive an overview of the obligations of your organization (and of the rights of those from whom you’re collecting personal data). At the end of the course, you’ll be able to translate the law to your daily life and work.
