Why is Data Protection, and DPA compliance, such a big issue?
Data loss in both public and private sectors is all over the media, and the governance of personal information now keeps company directors awake at night. This has been raised so far up the public agenda that the Information Commissioner (the UK’s regulatory body for the DPA) has now been granted extra powers and sanctions – including the power to levy fines of up to £500k.
This interactive and enjoyable one-day course gives both new and experienced staff and management – those involved with or responsible for personal data – an oversight of what the Data Protection Act means to their business and also to their own rights as an individual.
|DPA Foundation Course – in London, 13 December
