Introduction to GDPR v2.0


GDPR is EU legislation for the protection of personal data, adopted by EU member states in April 2016 and became enforceable on May 25, 2018. Since its introduction, it has become the model for many privacy laws worldwide and has resulted in many fines by information commissioners across Europe, in some cases to companies outside the EU.

This course introduces the regulation and the basic principles, roles, and definitions surrounding the use of personal data. It examines the rights of data subjects and provides an overview of how GDPR can impact the software development life cycle. The target audience for this course is anyone who is involved in privacy requirements in application development, management, and in roles involving data protection of personal data.
