Balanced dive into the UK GDPR—the best introduction to a personal data security journey. The passionate tutor guides you through the regulation with examples and best practices from their real-life experience. Supplemental materials are coherent and remarkable. The result assessment exam leaves no opportunity to go off with a weak understanding of a topic. Thank you!
