Course Description

RIBO Category: Management

Insurance Council of Saskatchewan Approved Ethics Course

If you work with international insurers or Lloyd's of London, you'll need to know about and comply with the GDPR (Government Data Protection Regulation).

Introduced in the European Union (EU) in 2018, GDPR is rapidly becoming the global "gold standard" for privacy legislation and many jurisdictions around the world are enacting similar legislation. Learning about this means you'll be ahead of the curve when it comes to information security and proper handling of client information.

This course will cover:

  • Canadian Federal & Provincial privacy legislation (PIPEDA, Privacy Act, Personal Information Act, etc.)
  • Discuss GDPR in detail and how it compares to existing Canadian legislation
  • Its impact on business and Cyber Liability insurance
  • Complying with GDPR
  • etc.

Students must pass the final exam before a certificate will be issued.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
