In 2012, the European Commission proposed a comprehensive reform of the European Union’s 1995 data protection rules. The idea was to modernize legislation to address the privacy challenges in a world with social media, analytics, and supercookies. On May 25, 2018, those data protection rules became enforceable under GDPR (short for the General Data Protection Regulation).
After finishing this GDPR training, you'll know how to stay compliant with GDPR. You’ll also learn about the intricacies of the legislation, including special category data, criminal offense data, your individual rights when your personal data is being collected, and the six bases for processing personal data.
