The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a framework that establishes guidelines for the collection and handling of personal data of individuals within the European Union (EU).

GDPR compliance training familiarizes employees with the critical components of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR course provides a detailed overview of GDPR principles, related roles, and responsibilities for ensuring privacy and data protection. This reduces the likelihood of organizations being fined under the GDPR and losing their reputation.

Non-compliance with GDPR may result in severe legal, reputational, and financial risks. GDPR violators can be fined up to 20M Euros or 4% of their annual turnover for the preceding financial year (whichever is greater).

GDPR applies to organizations processing Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of EU Residents. However, organizations outside the EU must also comply with GDPR if they collect or process personal information from EU customers.

The GDPR requires businesses to protect the privacy and personal data of EU citizens. It is designed to strengthen the data protection laws and clarify what organizations must do to protect data subject rights.
