General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Training

The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is a global law that governs how organizations collect, handle and process the personal information of people living in the European Economic Area (EEA). This includes the European Union, Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland. Geography aside, the GDPR also applies to US organizations — and other organizations located anywhere in the world — if they process the personal data of EEA citizens or residents. Fines for violations can be severe, underscoring the importance of implementing policies, procedures and practices that help prevent data breaches.

Under the GDPR, personal data is any information that identifies an individual, either directly or indirectly, such as names, location information, internet activities and email addresses. In order to process personal data, the GDPR requires organizations to show that the individual consented to the collection or use of their personal data; or it furthers an organization’s legitimate interests, meets a legal obligation, is in the public interest or protects a person’s vital interests.

As part of a comprehensive data privacy and information security strategy, GDPR training grounds employees in GDPR basics and connects the dots between GDPR principles and how they apply in their day-to-day work.
