GDPR training for software developers

In heavily compliance-oriented environments, training is key in both increasing awareness and documenting organisational efforts carried out to mitigate risks.

At TechGDPR, we bridge the gap between the regulatory landscape and tech development. We thought it only fair to share the knowledge with the wide development community. Our course was created to address the needs of product developers hoping to navigate through the lack of practical instructions that come with GDPR implementation. This course is available on a self-paced learning platform and requires on average 1.5 to 2.5 hours of your time.

It comprises 7 lessons to help you navigate what you need to know to release compliant digital products. Each lesson offers an introductory video, text, graphics, activities which you can do and redo as much as you like until you feel confident and comfortable enough to print your certificate of completion. The resource section offers plenty of reading material and hands-on guidance for anyone involved in product design, creation and release.

Why train your tech team on the GDPR?

  • You’ll be able to document the compliance efforts made at implementing data protection principles and Privacy by Design (GDPR Art. 5 and 25). 
  • You’ll gain an edge on competitors who still believe compliance is negotiated with clients on a case-by-case basis.
  • You’ll gain access to best practices, recommendations, examples and a plethora of resources that would require a great deal of expertise and take up valuable time to put together on your own.
    Whatever handout we’ve provided is yours to keep.
  • You’ll be able to assume thought leadership within your organization and help both design and legal teams understand one another.
