Course description

Data Protection Certification

Today´s digital Data Protection is as important as paying a tax. Protecting your customers´/clients´ data is very important in any business. The Data Protection Act (DPA) controls how personal information can be used and your rights to ask for information about yourself.

A large organization is likely to have a dedicated IT department that takes care of all technical aspects of the business, including its data protection. For smaller businesses, it doesn’t always make economic sense to have an in-house IT department, and often outsource, as required. However, data protection requires ongoing management because, no matter what type of business you have, you are collecting, using and storing data all the time. It is important that there are people within the organization who understand the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998. This course provides the required learning, to ensure that your company complies with the DPA and collects, uses and manages data accordingly. It is completely up-to-date and includes the changes to the DPA that are coming in 2018.
