Feeling stressed out about GDPR? I can help! Here are all of my GDPR cartoons and attempts at GDPR humor in one post. It’s much better to laugh than to cry . . .

Recently, I created two new GDPR training resources.
I created a 1-page visual summary of the GDPR, which I call the GDPR Whiteboard. The idea was to capture the key points of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in a succinct and visually-engaging way. It has become quite popular, receiving thousands of downloads. You can download a PDF handout version here. We’ve been licensing it to many organizations for training and awareness purposes.
GDPR Interactive Whiteboard
I subsequently created a new training module — an interactive version of the GDPR Whiteboard – the GDPR Interactive Whiteboard. When people click on each topic, the program provides brief narrated background information, presented in a very understandable and memorable way. Trainees can learn at their own pace. This program is designed to be very short — it is about 5 minutes long.
It can readily be used on internal websites to raise awareness and teach basic information about GDPR. It can also be used in learning management systems.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is one of the world’s strictest data privacy laws and requires privacy professionals around the globe to design and implement comprehensive compliance programs. In the past year, I developed a series of resources and training courses to assist privacy professionals with this complex task.
200+ pages of the GDPR summarized into 1 page! Download it for free here. This one page visual summary of GDPR will help you and your workforce understand many of the key elements associated with this law including Territorial Scope, Lawful Processing, Rights of Data Subjects, Enforcement and more.
I created a new highly-interactive version of the GDPR Whiteboard (~5 mins) — a computer-based module that can readily be used on internal websites to raise awareness and teach basic information about GDPR. It can also be used in a learning management system (LMS)
The GDPR Interactive Whiteboard adds a new level of engagement to the analog GDPR Whiteboard. and can be used in tandem with the analog version or in lieu of it.
A Guide to GDPR Training will answer many of your questions about implementing workforce privacy awareness training.
The GDPR mandates that all staff “involved in the processing operations” receive privacy awareness training. In general, the Data Protection Officer (DPO) is tasked with ensuring that all training requirements have been fulfilled. A comprehensive GDPR training program should include:
- basic privacy awareness training for your general workforce
- advanced training for personnel who need more detailed knowledge of GDPR
- role-based training specific to an individual’s job function.
I have several training courses to help organizations meet the GDPR requirements, such as the ones below plus courses on Privacy by Design, vendor management, risk and trust, and other important privacy topics.
This course provides an overview of the GDPR. It also explains the importance of GDPR compliance and the severe penalties that may be imposed for non-compliance. It is suitable for both lawyers and non-lawyers . This course can also be offered in conjunction with other courses in our series – Privacy Shield and European Union Privacy Law.
