Why should I attend this course?

The GDPR applies directly throughout Europe since 25/05/2018 and harmonizes legislation at the European level. It also applies outside the borders of the European Union to companies who provide goods or services to anyone located within the EU (SaaS, e-commerce website, etc.).

The GDPR has established a system of financial sanctions. These financial sanctions range from 10 million euros to 20 million euros or from 2% to 4% of the company’s annual global turnover. Other sanctions may relate to the activity itself, such as the cessation of processing.

An important element of the GDPR is that it is mandatory for any company subject to the GDPR to properly train its employees who process personal data.

Moreover, given that the majority of data breaches are due to human error, training is one of the most effective ways to reduce these violations. Train your employees by enrolling them in our e-learning training now!
