Staff awareness – the critical component in complying with the Data Protection Act

DPA Data protection is an issue that affects all organisations. Getting data protection wrong can bring commercial, reputational, regulatory and legal penalties.In the UK every organisation that handles personal data has to comply with the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998. Staff are responsible for handling data in accordance with the eight DPA principles.

Consistent and systematic staff training, and consequent up-to-date awareness, about the requirements of the DPA is essential to ensuring compliance with the Act.

Moreover, to achieve compliance you need to keep evidence that your staff have indeed undertaken and passed a DPA awareness course.

What better way to obtain this evidence than deploying DPA Staff Awareness eLearning within your organisation?

Your own corporate e-learning management portal automatically retains records of which staff have accomplished the course. You can easily monitor the compliance status of the organisation and see hard evidence of each employee’s level of understanding.
