Data Protection Essentials (GDPR)
Every time we buy a product, sign up to a service or get a new job, we willingly hand over our personal information, placing our trust in countless companies to handle our data securely and responsibly, despite frequent news of hacks and data breaches. With technology now playing such an integral role in data management, it has been imperative that data protection laws evolve to reflect this.
As a Council, the responsibility falls on you to keep data safe, secure and processed appropriately. As such, you need to know about, and comply with, current data protection regulations – the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 – to avoid serious legal consequences. This course will help you understand the aims and provisions of the UK's data protection legislation and offers essential, practical advice on how to make yourself compliant.
Now you've had a taste of GDPR e-learning, why not book onto our GDPR course to see how GDPR is relevant to you and your council.
