Engage In Learning GDPR Program Trusted By Hundreds Of Organizations

Some 300 UK-based organizations bought—and tens of thousands of individual learners throughout the EU completed—Engage in Learning GDPR program in the run-up to this regulation coming into force on 25th May.

According to Chris Horseman, Engage in Learning’s Managing Director, the Engage In Learning GDPR Program (available in various languages) was most popular among organizations in the financial services, IT, and retail industries.

“Our GDPR program has swiftly become one of our most popular programs,” he said, “Moreover, it looks like it’s going to continue to be popular as our customers use it as a key part of their regular induction or onboarding programs.”

Engage in Learning’s GDPR eLearning program explains the General Data Protection Regulation, defines ‘personal data’, and explains some of the GDPR’s key terms, definitions, and scope. It explains that ‘personal data’ is data that can be used to identify a living individual, either on its own or in combination with other information. It adds that personal data can also be any data directly linked to a specific living individual.

“Among other things, the program outlines the eight categories of ‘sensitive data’ that have strict rules relating to their collection. Financial information isn’t classified as sensitive data, but it’s controlled by the GDPR,” Horseman added.

“The program deals with the central tenet of the GDPR: what you can do with the data you hold—involving collecting, recording, retrieving, disclosing and erasing data. It defines key roles and concepts involved in GDPR and provides guidance on which activities are subject to the GDPR.

“Basically, the Engage In Learning GDPR Program provides answers to the key questions:

  • What’s the purpose of the GDPR?
  • What’s personal data?
  • What do the terms data subject, processing, data controller, consent, and data breach mean?
  • Who’s covered by the GDPR?
  • What tasks are covered by the GDPR?

“Importantly, it also sets out how to stay compliant with GDPR,” he stated.

“It seems that corporate buyers of eLearning materials are impressed with the design, content, and the quality of our materials,” said Horseman.
