If you have customers then you are effected by General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) . We have posted previously on various aspects of GDPR. But if you, like many, are still struggling to understand GDPR then we have uncovered a free course that will help.  Over at Futurelearn, University College London have put together a course called Introduction to GDPR: General Data Protection Regulation

FutureLearn is a digital education platform that was created back in 2012 by The Open University. They partner with various learning institutions, including many UK Universities. UCL, University College London, was founded in 1826 and is among the worlds top universities.

Course overview:

Understand what the GDPR means for you as data subject, controller or processor.
On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), aiming to improve data protection for individuals across the EU, became directly applicable. Now, organisations need to be compliant with the new rules and should act immediately.

By developing good knowledge of the GDPR and understanding how it affects you, you will learn about the first steps for making your organisation compliant and can immediately start taking them. You will explore data subjects’ rights, data controllers’ and processors’ obligations, and enforcement and compliance notions in the context of the Regulation.

You can find the course here and sign up yourself or sign up your staff members. If you’d like to speak to us regarding the IT aspects of GDPR then please contact us here at Nimbus CS.
