The EU GDPR Foundation online training course outline

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides a single, harmonized data protection law for the European Union. The Regulation extends the data rights of individuals, and requires organizations to develop clear policies and procedures to protect personal data, and to adopt appropriate technical and organizational measures.

Every US organization that processes or monitors EU residents’ personal data must comply with the GDPR – even if they are not established in the EU.
