IBM SkillsBuild for Students and Educators is built on IBM’s YourLearning platform, the internal learning platform for hundreds of thousands of IBMers around the world, which complies with rigorous global privacy and security standards: General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and ISO/IEC 27001.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in the European Union on data privacy and protection that gives individuals much greater control over how organizations/ companies process or control the processing of their personal data. It is generally considered the most stringent data protection regulation and became a model for most countries around the world. The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) has many similarities to GDPR.

ISO/IEC 27001* is an international standard on managing information security management systems (ISMS). Certification for ISO 27001 ensures that security is actively considered and managed in all aspects of the system.
