EU GDPR – or European Union General Data Protection Regulation – came into force on May 25, 2018. It mandates a baseline set of standards for companies that handle EU citizens’ data to safeguard the processing and movement of personal data. Any company that markets goods or services to EU residents, regardless of its location, is subject to the regulation, and non-compliance can cost companies up to 4% of the company’s global annual revenue.
It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that all their employees understand what the legislation is, the rights it gives individuals, and the responsibilities they have to ensure data is properly stored, processed and protected. The GDPR awareness for all enables employees to handle personal or sensitive data in compliance with EU GDPR, and the importance of doing so.
At Bolt, we have created the EU GDPR Level 1 eLearning Module with real-world examples to enable better engagement with the material on the EU GDPR changes and increase knowledge retention rates. For a more in-depth module aimed at managers and other senior staff, please refer to our EU GDPR Advanced Awareness eLearning Module.
Fully online and interactive, available 24/7 on any device and with no time limits, thanks to our state-of-the-art LMS. Complete with an assessment at the end, a certificate can be downloaded upon successful completion of the eLearning Module.
