Understanding Data Protection and Data Security Certificate (Online)

Data protection compliance is an essential legal requirement for all organisations. Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018, it is more vital than ever that anyone who works with personal data understands the laws and acts in compliance. Failure to process personal or sensitive data securely and lawfully can lead to severe penalties.

This online subsidised course highlights how to be compliant within an organisation and how to handle data correctly.

Please note: you must be aged 19 or older and live in England to complete this course.
