GDPR Education: A Collection of Quizzes and Quirky Resources


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). With an effective date of May 25, 2018, organizations within the EU and those managing EU citizen data are scrambling to get up to speed on the impending regulation.

Almost daily we come across a news story or new resource for GDPR that’s intended to educate and inform. The topic of GDPR can be a heavy one, with its sweeping business impact and hefty non-compliance fines. What’s catching our attention this week are the creative and easy-to-digest GDPR resources.

GDPR Education “Light”

If you’re growing weary of lengthy blog posts and wordy white papers, here are some lighter reads that provide essential information on GDPR and how to get ready for compliance:

  • Collibra’s interactive quiz walks you through several questions to test your general understanding of GDPR and its impact to organizations in and outside the EU. (Note: As of March 2024, the quiz is longer available on Collibra’s website.)
  • CEB/Gartner’s readiness quiz focuses more on the organizational structure required to manage regulations, like GDPR. (Note: To see how you did on the quiz, you’ll need to submit some personal information and have your results sent back to you.)
  • The GDPR Coalition, a volunteer-driven initiative aimed to raise awareness of GDPR, published a series of colorful, informative resources, including the GDPR Jargon Bingo infographic and Snakes and Ladders “game.”

The GDPR Coalition’s GDPR Jargon Bingo brings a light-hearted educational approach to a heavy topic.

We’d be remiss not to mention our Big Data and Global Data Privacy Regulations article. Though it’s not a quiz or game, we believe you’ll find its coverage of GDPR informative.

Let us know if you come across additional GDPR resources that take a light-hearted educational approach to this heavy topic.

First San Francisco Partners (FSFP) is not a law firm nor does it represent one. Therefore, neither FSFP, nor any of its employees, consultants and sub-contractors, provide legal advice on data privacy regulations (e.g., GDPR).
FSFP expects that any enterprise that engages FSFP leverages the enterprise’s Legal and Data Privacy experts, often with outside Counsel, to interpret the data privacy regulation or law (e.g., GDPR) as they require.
Furthermore, FSFP expects that the designated enterprise’s Legal and Data Privacy expert(s) participate throughout any engagement involving FSFP to provide advice, guidance and interpretation (along with advice and/or guidance from designated outside Counsel) of the impact of the data privacy regulation or law (e.g., GDPR) on the enterprise.
FSFP’s role is not to provide this advice and/or guidance, but rather FSFP partners with the appropriate enterprise Legal and Data Privacy experts and other key personnel in Data Governance, IT, Risk, Procurement, etc., to translate the Legal and Data Privacy experts’ interpretation into operationalized practices supporting data privacy compliance.
FSFP does not guarantee compliance with any applicable laws and/or regulations (e.g., GDPR) in any jurisdictions (e.g., the European Union.) The expectation is that the enterprise reviews and vets the FSFP work products – including, but not limited to – content, deliverables, Readiness Assessment tools (e.g., GDPR) – essentially all artifacts – with accredited legal experts for final opinions.
