Course Description

Employees working in the UK commercial and third sector companies of any size need to be aware of the legal requirements for Data Protection and Privacy. It is important for employees to be aware of the context of their role and the roles of others in complying with Privacy Law. This course provides awareness of the law, the principles of data protection and the critically important aspects of privacy management that will benefit the company, its employees and its customers.

Regulatory requirements include regular training of employees and whilst this course achieves that, there is added value content, intended to enhance the students’ knowledge to positively contribute to improved company performance.
