Course Description

Employees working in 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. Functional leads and heads of departments in particular need to be especially aware of the requirements detailed in legislation and also best practices for information governance related to data protection in their specific context.

An overview of role specific topics are included in this course to best align it to small organsiations that do not have formal departments and individuals in dedicated posts. More likely one or two managers in a small organisation are responsible for all operations and this course intends to provide an overview of the data protection topics related to these operations. Separate more comprehensive role specific courses are available for each of the role specific topics identified here. This course includes an overview and introduction of the following role specific content.

  • Human Resource Management

This course provides awareness of the law, the principles of data protection and the critically important aspects of privacy management focussing on their roles in order to benefit the company, its employees and its customers.
