Data Protection is an issue which is rarely out of the news and the Data Protection Act (DPA) is something that every UK business has to comply with. It’s not just The News of The World hacking scandal, data breaches at Sony and government agencies losing confidential personal information.
If you store or handle personal information you need to ensure you are DPA compliant and that your staff are sufficiently trained. Failure to do so and subsequent breaches of the DPA can cost you huge amounts in fines, brand damage and loss of business.
Our DPA Foundation Course is ideal starting place for those who need to ensure their organisations are DPA compliant.
The course will give you the insight into what the Data Protection Act means to your organisation, how to review your own level of compliance and what you need to do to ensure your organisation is compliant.
