GDPR Data Security Compliance Course

Businesses obtain and process an ever-increasing amount of personal data in electronic and hard-copy formats.

Under the GDPR, firms can be fined millions of euros for data breaches.

So it's vital that businesses and their employees protect this data from unauthorised use or access, theft, loss, illegal copying, viewing and deletion.

Our GDPR Data Security Compliance Course will help your employees to understand how to use digital communications, devices, systems and networks to ensure that personal data are kept secure.
