The European Union (EU) has created the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) since the 25th of may 2018.
The way companies and organizations collect, use and maintain data has changed dramatically over the years. For example, the electronic storage of data is a relatively new concept and one that has not always been adequately addressed by existing legislation. Experts believe that it is one of the most important pieces of data protection legislation drafted within the last 20 years. It is important that everyone involved in the collection, storage and processing of personal data be aware of the GDPR and its implications. This course from Online Courses Learning is an introduction to the scope and purpose of the GDPR.
