Course Title

GDPR: Requirements for Data Controllers and Data Processors

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 examines the role and responsibilities of business entities subject to the GDPR (i.e., data controllers and data processors). The course addresses and expands upon key GDPR requirements for data controllers and data processors, including the relationship between data controllers, processors, and supervisory authorities, appointment of a data protection officer, privacy by design, data protection impact assessment, data protection and storage, data transfers, and lawful processing of data.

You will have 90 days from your date of enrollment to complete the course.
