Course Title

GDPR: Breach Notification and Penalties

Course Description

On May 25, 2018, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect. The GDPR is, arguably, the most significant legislation pertaining to the protection of privacy and personal information and, with its reach outside of the EU, will impact business entities on a global scale. This course focuses on the GDPR's breach notification requirements for data controllers and data processors, including reporting and record-keeping requirements. This course also examines the decision-making process (i.e., the role of, and interactions with, supervisory authorities) and the types of fines and penalties for non-compliance with the GDPR.

  • You will understand the types of fines and penalties for non-compliance with the GDPR and know the factors considered by the supervisory authority in determining the appropriate punishment, if any, under the GDPR.
