Data breaches can cost an organization money, market share, jobs and even reputation. What’s the best way to ensure that personal data is not misused or put at risk of unauthorized exposure? Well-trained employees.

The GDPR version of our Global Data Privacy course can provide this training. Using a combination of engaging videos, animations and interactive exercises, this course provides a solid, foundational knowledge of basic data privacy concepts. Employees will learn how to safely handle personal data and how to quickly and appropriately respond to potential or actual data breaches. Written to comply with the Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the course also includes guidelines for safely using technology, as well as role-specific information for employees who may handle more personal data as a part of their job.

Employees need the knowledge and skills to properly protect personal data, so they can help to minimize an organization’s risks, as well as the risks for the clients, customers and business partners that trust them. And it all starts with data privacy training.
