GDPR going live on

GDPR E-Learning Course
We recognise that not all staff need a detailed full day training course on GDPR. The Act Now GDPR E-Learning Platform is designed to allow your staff to grasp the basic dos and don'ts of GDPR in less than one hour. It consists of two narrated modules covering:
  • The main provisions of GDPR including new Data Subject rights; and
  • How to keep personal data safe and secure

In producing these modules we have had regard to the Information Commissioner's Data Protection training checklist.

Each module is accompanied by a multiple-choice quiz containing 10 randomly generated questions based on the contents of the module. The pass mark is 60% on each quiz. A certificate of successful completion is issued to each participant after completing both quizzes.

The table below explains the contents of each module in more detail.
