From 25th May 2018 non-compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation may result in fines of up to 4% of global annual turnover. The changes required by some companies are extensive and the deadline is fast approaching. This QA GDPR Introduction E-Learning product will help companies to prepare for this change.

For first time users, the course starts with an introduction video. The video sets the scene for the course, draws out some salient points and helps to communicate why GDPR is so important for all companies, regardless of sector or size. The video will still be accessible afterwards from the main menu, should learners want to view it again.
