Data Protection in the Workplace

All companies have a legal requirement to keep the personal information of their customers and employees safe. Combine this with the serious damage to a business's reputation which comes from any loss or theft of data, and the inevitable drop in sales and trust, and it becomes obvious as to why all firms need to take data protection seriously.

The Data Protection in the Workplace online course provides information on the benefits of good data safety, the Data Protection Act, creating a data protection policy, handling requests for personal data and more (the full syllabus can be seen below).
