GDPR Compliance Courses

All the courses in this library were updated to coincide with last year's GDPR first anniversary.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires you to train your staff on everything from consent, data retention, and the rights of individuals depending on their role. Employees in certain high-risk positions need a deep understanding of lawful bases, dealing with Subject Access Requests and data protection impact assessments.

Skillcast provides a complete digital solution for GDPR compliance training with a library of general and specialised e-learning courses.
