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. They also need to be aware of the context of their role and the roles of others in complying with the Law. A good grounding in the principles and expectations that any company would have of its employee’s behaviour is critically important as this will benefit the company and its customers.

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

The course can be taken by any employee, particularly information workers and those who access or process personal information.
