The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force on 25 May 2018. The GDPR is applicable to both EU member states and organizations outside the union when processing the data of citizens within it. The new Regulation contains a number of new protections for EU data subjects and will threaten significant fines and penalties (€20 million or 4% of global annual turnover) for non-compliant data controllers and processors.
Some of the new obligations will include such matters as data subject consent, data anonymization, breach notification, cross-border data transfers. The IAPP Certifications get them all covered. The IAPP Certifications offer programs on information privacy that are specifically designed for professionals who manage, handle and access data, and recognized and respected by employers the world over.
