We first launched our GDPR Overview module a year ago in order to help organizations as they ramped up for the May 25 enforcement date. New updates reflect the most recent interpretations of the GDPR, but as before, the GDPR training module offers an excellent way to introduce end users to the requirements of the regulation and the concept of data privacy. You can use this module to help employees understand why they need to be active participants in overall GDPR compliance.
GDPR in Action
Our new GDPR in Action module complements the GDPR Overview training by presenting more in-depth, action-oriented scenarios that challenge users to think about how the new regulation impacts their day-to-day business activities. This module is designed to minimize an organization’s risk of non-compliance with the regulation by making end users aware of the types of information that are protected under the GDPR and giving actionable advice on how to handle EU residents’ personal data.
GDPR in Action provides the following benefits:
- It explores the concepts that are essential to the GDPR and how they affect organizations that hold and manage personal data of EU residents.
- It teaches end users what is considered personal data and how it can show up in unexpected places.
- It leverages scenario-based training, giving end users thought-provoking situations to evaluate, with real-time feedback on their decisions.
Factor End Users Into Your Compliance Equation
In speaking about the GDPR and the release of the new GDPR in Action module, Joe Ferrara, our General Manager, stressed that employees must be factored into compliance-related activities leading up to and following the enforcement date. “The GDPR will bring monumental changes in the way the world handles the personal data of EU residents,” he said. “Organizations cannot afford for their end users to lack understanding around these new regulations.”
