Learning Objectives

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are the new regulations governing the processing of personal data for citizens and residents in the European Union (EU). They are a significant upgrade to existing laws and fundamentally change the relationship between the personal data of individuals in the EU and the organizations that process it. The GDPR makes our personal data legally ours and puts significant constraints on organizations that wish to process it. The regulations include significant and dissuasive fines on organizations that misuse personal data. This will affect any organization globally that offers goods or services to the EU citizens or residents and processes their personal data. It comes into effect in May 2018. This course will provide an overview of those regulations.
