1. Do I need special software/equipment?

Your normal computer with an internet connection is fine. You will need speakers or headphones so that you can hear the sound. No special software is required. The course also works on an iPad but you may find the screen on a smartphone (iPhone etc.) is too small for you to fully benefit.

The whole course (2 modules and 2 quizzes) will take about 1 hour, though you may wish to take it slowly to maximise your learning.

3. What does the course cover?

  • The main provisions of GDPR including new Data Subject rights; and
