TC014: Introduction to GDPR

TC014: Introduction to GDPR

Does your organization have a website? Do you have any visitors from the EU? Starting May 25th, you could be fined 20 million Euros or 4% of annual global revenue, whichever is greater, if you do anything to violate EU citizens' rights under the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). This new law will hold businesses accountable for transparency and security of any customer information they possess about any EU citizen. U.S. and international companies that export and handle personal data of European citizens will need to comply with the new requirements or be subject to its hefty penalties. This self-paced online course will explore this mandate and its impact on international development organizations.
