Course Content

This course provides basic training for educational institutions regarding the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR is valid and applicable from 25/5/2018. The intention behind the regulation is to harmonise data protection law across the EU and increase transparency. The GDPR regulates, among other things, how the (fully or partially) automated (= computer-based) processing of personal data must be documented. The GDPR is not completed on 25/05/2018 but will be with us for the coming years.

The training should give you an overview introduction to the legal aspects of the GDPR. The iMoox course includes nine short sessions of about 10 minutes each with slides and control questions.

Course Goals

The issue of GDPR compliance, like copyright or software compliance, is an important necessity in a company. There is no ONE answer for achieving and maintaining GDPR compliance; individual cases have to be considered and decided correctly. The objective is to prepare you for the topic so that you can independently answer the GDPR compliance topics that are relevant for your area.

Course Procedure

The course comprises nine modules on the following topics: 

  • Introduction
  • Current legal situation, central promises, primary law
  • Primary law, Data Protection Adaptation Act
  • Scope of application, goals
  • Roles, principles
  • Rights of those affected
  • Additional rights, instruments, processing list
  • DPO, PIA, data security
  • Privacy breach, notification, penalties/compensation


For actively participating in the course you will receive an automatic confirmation of participation (certificate) which includes your username, the course title, course duration as well as the hours required to complete the course. We want to point out that this certificate merely confirms that the user answered at least 75% of the self-assessment questions correctly.
