GDPR for United States (US) Employees

Compliance training course for users

This course is for regular people in your organization - no prior knowledge required.

  • General Data Protection Regulation terms like "Data Protection Officer" are defined in easy-to-understand language

  • Scenarios and lessons-learned are from the regular employee's viewpoint

  • We focus on things that a user can control, like recognizing and responding to citizen rights requests


We teach regular users:

  • How to recognize GDPR-protected personal data

  • To know the guaranteed rights of the data subject

  • How to respond when they get a rights request (even if this isn't their job)

  • To be an active protector of citizen rights

  • How to keep your organization safe from liability


We believe this is the best GDPR course available for United States companies and organizations. 


This course is different from the rest. 

We focus on educating the regular employee, NOT your trained security staff.  We don't go deep into designing a GDPR-compliant infrastructure or quote the law endlessly.   Your workforce needs to know how to protect your organization from liability by their own actions.  We focus on things your employees can control.

About This Course

  • The GDPR course is 30 minutes long and includes scenarios, stories, and examples of data privacy in the real world. 

  • End of chapter quizzes increase learning retention and the final test ensures that your staff understand the key concepts.

  • We can host the course ourselves, or we can package it for you to host internally on your LMS.

  • Contact information for your organization's Data Protection Officer / CISO is customized.  We can also customize other sections if requested - for example, to add information about specific processes and policies within your organization.

5 Reasons We Are Different

  • Our courses are FUN and ENGAGING!  Seriously, they are!  Request to view a demo if you want to see for yourself.

  • Your users will watch the courses from start to finish.  Because we use fast paced animation and few pauses, students don't have time to get distracted.  

  • Each year, we research industry trends and the latest threats.  This means our courses evolve over time.  We don't endlessly repeat the same information.

  • We will customize our courses for YOUR workplace.  A key part of security awareness is knowing how to get help.  We put specific contact information for your security manager, IT department, or compliance officer into the body of the course. 

  • We are proven educators!  Native Intelligence security awareness materials have received multiple awards from the Federal Information System Security Educators Association (FISSEA), which is organized by NIST.

Our security awareness training courses are SCORM-compliant. 

Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a set of technical standards for eLearning software products, such as online courses and Learning Management Systems (LMSs). SCORM tells programmers how to write their code so that it can be used with other eLearning software. SCORM ensures that online learning content and LMSs communicate with each other.  SCORM also defines how content (courses) may be packaged into a transferable ZIP file. 

Basically, SCORM compliance means that our courses will work on any popular LMS.


Incorporating NIST SP 800-50 and SP 800-16 best practices

The two publications are complementary – SP 800-50 works at a higher strategic level, discussing how to build an IT security awareness and training program, while SP 800-16 is at a lower tactical level, describing an approach to role-based IT security training.

Our courses cover topics and use techniques described in SP 800-50 and 800-16 so that you don't need to reinvent the wheel.


Our Federal Government courses are Section 508-compliant

Section 508 was made part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 in 1998. Its purpose is to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology (EIT) accessible to people with disabilities.

508 compliance means that our courses are designed to be audio friendly for learners with hearing impairments AND vision friendly for disabled or colorblind learners.


Are you working on FISMA compliance for your 2019 federal training program? 

The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) is a United States federal law passed in 2002 that made it a requirement for federal agencies to develop, document, and implement an information security and protection program. 

If you're building a training program, you should demo our courses, ask for sample newsletters, or read through our more in-depth educational material.  Please let us know what you are interested in - we love to share what we've been working on!  

Native Intelligence has been providing security awareness courses and role-based training to the government and private sector for more than twenty years.
