EU GDPR and Data Security


About This Course

The European Union (EU) impacted most global enterprises in May 2016 when it passed the General Data Protection Regulation, entering into effect two years later (May 25, 2018). All companies— including international firms—doing business with individuals located in EU member states must comply with the regulation’s far-reaching provisions. Moreover, many significant trading nations, including the UK, are emulating the EU GDPR to pass their own upgraded data protection regulations for citizens. Failure to act quickly to prepare for the regulation could have serious consequences—to an organisation’s bottom line, customer relationships and reputation.
