The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

How Blackboard’s GDPR Implementation Supports Our Clients

A Welcome Change to Data Privacy

At Blackboard, we believe data privacy is a human right. The GDPR will benefit individuals and organisations by increasing trust between them, and leading to better data privacy practices. 

Using GDPR as an opportunity to strengthen our practices, we are building on our existing robust data privacy practices (e.g. our EU-US Privacy Shield certification) to continue our client-focused approach and support data privacy compliance. Blackboard is Privacy Shield certified, a proud signatory of the Student Privacy Pledge and a member of the Future of Privacy Forum. 

Read our GDPR white paper below which provides an overview of the changes and the myths around the GDPR, explains our implementation approach, and details how our efforts will support our clients.
