Privacy Training


Talk Privacy to me


GW recognizes the importance of privacy and protecting the personal data of our students, staff and faculty.

We believe it is important that all individuals who collect, use, store, or process personal information on behalf of the university will have a good understanding of the governing privacy laws and regulations.

The Privacy Office offers various resources to help students, staff and faculty learn about privacy.

Online Training

Online privacy regulations (HIPAA, FERPA, GDPR) training modules are available to the GW community.

These modules are designed to train GW students, staff and faculty who handle personal information in the essentials of privacy. The online training courses are ideal for onboarding and annual training.
