GDPR Data Protection Course

Data protection relates to how personal and sensitive data is collected, used and stored by all organisations from the government, to companies and service providers or anyone else who by law collects it.

While perceptions of data protection may vary, the law is very clear about the obligations to protect personal and special category data whilst respecting the rights of individuals.

Our Data Protection Course will help your employees to understand what personal and sensitive data are, why it needs protecting and how to ensure compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
