Ely, England, 19 October 2011 – ITGovernance Ltd, the global leader in DPA training, information, books and tools, makes organisations aware of the importance of staff training. The experts at IT governance are urging organisations to provide staff responsible for personal data with appropriate training, or they risk to be fined if this data is lost. The DPA Foundation course exists to provide staff with up-to-date knowledge of the current legal compliance position around personal data.
One of the key aspects to be considered when ensuring that organisations meet the requirements of the Data Protection Act (DPA) is whether their staff are aware of the DPA principles and if they can apply them in practice. Failure to meet the DPA requirements can result in fines as high as £500,000.
The one-day DPA Foundation course from IT Governance combines a mixture of theory and group workshop sessions to examine the DPA legislation. It also explores methods of complying with the DPA whilst supporting business objectives. Delegates who take the course will be able to review and understand the current processes of handling personal data, and ensure that these processes are in line with the latest Data Protection Act compliance requirements. The workshop discussions and planned exercises during the course will help delegates to apply what they have learnt in their own work environment.
One delegate described the course as “The best Data Protection course there is!" Another attendee commented, “I found the course extremely interesting and the instructor was excellent."
