Description

In this course, GDPR: The Big Picture, you’ll discover which organizations must comply with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation and how GDPR will affect all IT teams. First, you’ll start by meeting the key terms used in the GDPR and seeing how the regulation aims to balance the things that an organization wants to do with personal data with people’s rights, including their right to privacy. Next, you'll find out the key data protection principles and what they mean for systems, before discovering the specific rights that people have over data about them, and what IT must do to respond to those rights. After that, you'll learn about the core things that GDPR requires an organization to do, including the way it wants you to manage the security of people’s data and what to do when the organization has a breach of data security. Finally, you’ll think about the application of GDPR by discovering an organizational journey from the beginning of the process to GDPR compliance and by exploring how GDPR affects a typical application development project. By the end of this course, you’ll have the core GDPR knowledge that anyone working in IT needs to understand. You’ll be able to take account of GDPR when working in projects across the IT lifecycle from design and development through deployment to running systems. You’ll also be comfortable discussing GDPR with your organization’s legal, compliance and governance teams.

Course Overview
Hello everyone. My name is John Elliott, and welcome to my course, GDPR: The Big Picture. I'm a data protection officer for a few companies and I specialize in helping organizations, and especially IT teams, comply with regulations. The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation will change the way that every organization in the world looks at the people's data. In this course, we're going to discover why the GDPR exists, and get to grips with the full key foundations of the regulation, the data protection principles, the rights people have over data about them, the obligations for organizations, and finally, what can happen when things go wrong. We'll take a really close look at the information security requirements in the regulation, consider the essential steps in a GDPR program, and discuss how GDPR will affect system design. By the end of this course, you'll have a great understanding of what the GDPR is, and more importantly, what it is not. You'll be able to plan and manage IT projects in a way that's compliant with the law and respectful of people's fundamental rights and freedoms, which GDPR aims to protect. I do hope you'll join me on this journey into the general data protection regulation with this GDPR: The Big Picture course, at Pluralsight.
