Businesses hold significant amounts of data. An inability to protect it adequately will leave your organisation open to legal action, reputational damage and financial loss. In this course we explain data protection principles in plain language and the sorts of things you should be doing to protect yourself.
Upon completion of this course learners will be able to:
- Understand the principles of Data Protection
- Analyse the principles in the context of their business
- Apply appropriate measures to ensure compliance and security of data in their possession
IMPORTANT – this course does not constitute legal advice, practices can differ between organisations and jurisdictions. In the event of any doubts you are strongly advised to consult the relevant Information Commissioners office or a legal adviser.
