What to expect:

Creating a Data Privacy Plan: In today’s digital world, concerns about personal data privacy are at the top of consumer’s minds. And with the advent of the EU’s new GDPR regulation, organizations need to take data privacy seriously to avoid large fines and a tarnished reputation. This puts it in every business’s best interest to adopt good privacy practices.

Writing a data privacy plan is one of the best ways to kick-start compliance with the GDPR and other privacy laws by outlining policies and procedures that will guide employees towards good privacy practices. It is also an important record to keep.

You will be able to obtain a “certificate of completion” with your name and completion date on it.
