GDPR Training - Privacy Awareness Training - TeachPrivacy


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was adopted by the European Commission on April 27, 2016.  It replaces the EU Data Protection Directive, and became effective on May 25, 2018.  The GDPR strengthens privacy protections in the EU and includes a number of additional rights and responsibilities.   With a length of about 250 pages, the GDPR requires extensive time and resources to comply with.  Indeed, the GDPR’s vastness and complexity can seem overwhelming.

Professor Daniel J. Solove has created two GDPR training courses:

GDPR Extensive (20 min)

This course on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) — extensive version (~20 mins) — provides an introduction to the GDPR. The course discusses the scope and applicability of the GDPR, the terminology of the law, the rights it provides to people in the EU, and the responsibilities it imposes on data controllers and processors.  The course discusses data breach notification, data transfer to processors and international data transfer.

The course includes 5 quiz questions.

GDPR (7 min)

Our GDPR short training course is designed to explain the key requirements of the GDPR in a concise, accessible, and engaging way and to help lead to GDPR compliance.  The course can be used to teach lawyers as well as non-lawyers, and it is a great way to educate a wide array of types of workforce members about the GDPR and the importance of following it.

The GDPR training course (~7 mins) provides a brief introduction to the GDPR.

GDPR Training Outline

GDPR Right to Erasure - Right to be ForgottenThe course consists of a video and 4 quiz questions that test on and reinforce the lessons in the video.  The GDPR training course can stand alone or can be snapped together with other topic segments and goes well with the other courses in our series –  Privacy Shield and European Union Privacy Law.

For global organizations, the GDPR presents a formidable challenge to be reckoned with.  Organizations should be taking the GDPR seriously because the EU is taking it seriously.  The best way to comply with the GDPR and avoid the wrath of regulators is to take compliance seriously and have a robust data protection program.  Regulators look for clear and conspicuous gaps in programs.  A lack of privacy awareness training is one of these gaps.  The good news is that there is an easy solution for GDPR training — we have this course on GDPR as well as many other privacy awareness training topics.

    About TeachPrivacy and Our Training Philosophy

    Daniel Solove Privacy Awareness Training TeachPrivacy was founded by Professor Daniel J. Solove, the leading expert on privacy and data security law. He is deeply involved in the creation of all training programs because he believes that training works best when made by subject-matter experts and by people with extensive teaching experience.

    According to Professor Solove: “Great training isn’t about slickness or tricks. It is about teaching. The goal is to make people understand, care, and remember. Great training is made with genuine passion – to make people love training, it must be made with love. Excellent substance is essential. The material must be explained clearly, understandably, and concretely. The content must be short and to the point – and it must be engaging. Slickness and gimmicks can’t compensate for lackluster substance.”

    TeachPrivacy provides privacy awareness training, information security awareness training, phishing training, HIPAA training, FERPA training, PCI training, as well as training on many other privacy and security topics.

    Professor Solove is a law professor at George Washington University Law School. He has taught privacy law every year since 2000, has published 10 books and more than 50 articles, including the leading textbook on information privacy law and a short guidebook on the subject. His LinkedIn blog has more than 1 million followers. Click here for more information about Professor Solove.
