GDPR in The Workplace Certification

About this course


The GDPR still applies to the UK despite having now left the EU. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been retained in UK law with only some small changes.

The key principles, rights and obligations remain the same. It is now known as the UK GDPR.

In this course, ‘GDPR’ refers to both the EU and UK GDPR. Where the information relates specifically to the UK or EU GDPR, this will be referred to as UK GDPR or EU GDPR. The GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, is an important part of EU/UK and international law.

This regulation protects the personal data of citizens, outlining the ways that businesses are responsible to store, protect and process it.

The goal of this course is to give you a deep understanding of the legislation itself, as well as how it may apply to any business that you work in.

Although the GDPR is implemented officially in the EU & the UK, it is actually a respected regulation all over the world. Not to mention, any international business that deals with the data of EU/UK citizens is still expected to adhere to these regulations.
