Everyone is talking about the new General Data Protection Regulation and you have probably already heard about the new rules.

But what does the rules mean in practice?
Do you and your company comply with the requirements of the new regulation?
How do you and your colleagues become ready to process personal data in accordance with the new rules?
And where and how should you start?

One thing is that the management must ensure a proper implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation and must be able to document what the company does and why. The organisation must analyse its current compliance level, plans of action must be implemented, contingency plans must be developed, etc. However, related to all the work of the new regulation is also a big and important task in educating the employees who are working with and handling personal data.

Education – does that mean that all employees need to read the more than 200-page-long regulation? No, that would not be particularly effective or educational! But how then can you ensure that you and your colleagues get an education experience from a comprehensive and complicated legislative text? This is where e-learning comes into the picture!
