LRN’s New Suite of Data Privacy Courses Helps Companies Comply With the European Union’s New General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Companies Serving Clients in the EU Must Adhere to Stricter Data Privacy Protocols; LRN’s Roster of Courses Bring Organizations Up to Speed on GDPR Compliance

NEW YORK, May 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — With stricter data privacy policies coming into effect on May 25, 2018 (visit www.eugdpr.org), companies serving clients in the European Union are modifying their data processing procedures to ensure that they are compliant. LRN Corporation’s suite of data privacy courses can help organizations and their employees understand the regulations and principles, as well as core data protection beyond the new EU rules.

LRN’s GDPR courses complement the company’s existing data privacy education offerings, which teach users about a range of data privacy issues such as spotting and responding to social engineering, respectful communication in digital correspondences, and the ethical and responsible handling of user data. Interactive elements such as guided questioning, drag and drop activities, infographics, and short quizzes ensure users are actively engaging with the content, making it more likely that they will retain the information at hand.

Among the courses LRN offers on GDPR are:

  • “Data Privacy and Protection: A European Perspective Under GDPR”
  • “Data Protection and Privacy: An Overview”
  • “Data Protection, Privacy, and Information Security: An Overview”

“The new policies introduced by the General Data Protection Regulation are important, but ensuring that a company is aligned with GDPR’s new laws can be daunting,” says Sunil Bheda, who helps lead course technology and product innovation at LRN. “We believe in providing workplace education that makes difficult and complex subject matter like the GDPR as approachable and involving as possible: The best way to do this is through courses that streamline content, directly engage users through interactivity, and tell compelling stories about the subjects at hand.”

“Underscoring the need for more workplace education on GDPR: ‘Data Privacy and Protection: A European Perspective Under GDPR,’ has had over 150,000 completions since its inception,” says Bheda.

LRN’s corporate ethics and compliance platform includes curricula, video vignettes, live workshops, blended learning, and online courses on ethics, data privacy, harassment, discrimination, bullying, and other dimensions of conduct and behavior inside an organization.
