This course will help participants determine the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as it relates to their organization and personal responsibilities. Organizations doing business in Europe are already required to comply and similar legislation has begun to emerge within the US.  As such, organizations need to understand the requirements of GDPR and the corresponding compliance efforts.

We will explore GDPR requirements and the corresponding processes your organization should implement to comply.  It is critical for organizations to be aware of the data subjects’ rights, the data processor’s responsibilities and methodologies for compliance.  GDPR is relevant corporations, educators, health care providers, technological developers and others handling personal data.

Course Key Concept: GDPR, Compliance, Privacy, General Data Protection.

Learning Objectives
  • Explore the basics of the General Data Protection Regulation.
  • Identify the key requirements of GDPR.
  • Discover how NIST can be leveraged for compliance.
  • Recognize the impact of GDPR and risk of non-compliance.

This course provided solid introduction to GDPR. Content was very dry, but this is expected due to its nature as a compliance-based regulation. Instructor could be more engaging and provide examples. Some of the test material seemed to be in the regulation itself versus in the course.

Good introduction to GDPR Compliance. Working for a US company that does not operate in EU, I'd never heard of GDPR so this was a great overview of the compliance requirements.
