IT Governance, the leading provider of cyber security, privacy and risk management solutions and training , has released an e-learning game that tests learners’ understanding of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance concepts and data processing requirements. The game, GDPR Challenge, uses real-life scenarios to help organisations test their employees’ knowledge and identify areas for improvement.
Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “The GDPR sets out specific provisions for training and maintaining the privacy awareness of employees handling personal data. Human error accounts for 93% of social engineering-related data breaches, therefore organisations must ensure employees receive the necessary training and learn about the GDPR’s requirements to help maintain a compliant posture.
“Drawing on our experience delivering GDPR training and data protection staff awareness e-learning courses to thousands of professionals, we have developed this short but effective game to help organisations test their staff’s knowledge using real-life examples and scenarios.”
The GDPR Challenge E-learning Game is a fast and efficient game designed to help staff refresh and strengthen their GDPR knowledge. It provides them with an interactive platform to learn about the Regulation while competing against other colleagues to reach the highest score.
Players are presented with a range of scenarios and must answer questions on processing data in compliance with the GDPR. The game aims to educate staff about sharing personal data within the company, managing consent and potential challenges with it, handling data subject access requests (DSARs), and managing personal data erasure and access permissions challenges.
The game can be integrated into existing privacy awareness programmes. Organisations can also customise the game to support their business and brand objectives, and track results via the IT Governance learning management system.
“A recent report suggests that the GDPR has had a positive impact on organisations by prompting them to improve their data protection processes and ensure staff awareness training is implemented,” continued Calder. “Employees play a critical role in maintaining GDPR compliance, so organisations have little choice but to adopt a holistic approach to staff awareness training.”
