It is designed to give you the essential information in a short period of time. It'll give you a high-level understanding of many different compliance requirements. Each compliance regulation in itself would take hours to learn, but after taking this big picture course, you will learn the key obligations under each of the compliance requirements. In this course, you're going to learn what the key elements are for major security compliance programs such as the GDPR, PCI-DSS, FISMA, and Cyber Essentials, what the implications are for non-compliance, whether the compliance requirements are driven by legal or industry regulations, or whether they're discretionary international standard compliance requirements.

You don't need to have any other knowledge before taking this course. I have no doubt your organization has compliance requirements, so I'm delighted you're going to join me on this course.
