IAPP GDPR Essentials

TrustArc will now offer the International Association of Privacy Professionals’ (IAPP) Privacy Core® GDPR Essentials training, an online e-learning solution designed to train employees on privacy fundamentals and to enable companies to meet the GDPR employee training requirement in a scalable, effective manner. Investing in training can help meet GDPR requirements, and it is a best practice too.

This training course helps fulfill at least two GDPR Articles’ requirements that explicitly call out training, Article 39 and Article 47. Additionally, all staff can benefit from learning about data protection. Thus, it is no surprise that IAPP & TrustArc research found that the number one way companies can mitigate GDPR compliance risk is investment in training. Training employees on data protection and privacy tops the list for 10 of 11 GDPR compliance risks.
