Graphic with GDPR training

Course Description

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) firmly in effect, organizations are transitioning from initial to ongoing compliance efforts. All organization and their employees must share responsibility for protecting the personally identifiable information (PII) of European citizens.

GLS has designed this training program in an innovative and award-winning gamified learning format to promote user engagement and learning. Gamification increases learners’ motivation to take and complete a course, while also boosting their retention of the material. Learners who have completed gamified courses also score higher on knowledge assessments than those who took a more traditional learning route. Adding gamification to GDPR training increases the likelihood that learners will understand the material and internalize the critical nature of compliance.

This course is also available in a non-gamified “Essentials” version.

Importance of GDPR Training 

As one of the most comprehensive privacy laws in the world, GDPR imposes obligations on organizations globally. If your company targets or collects data related to companies or citizens in the EU, you are required to comply with GDPR. Violations can result in heavy fines, up to 20 million euros in some cases. GLS’s GDPR training is applicable to all organizations that wish to protect their business and employees.
