Data Protection Essential Knowledge - Level 2

Training course carries 5 hours CPD points 

Courses take place in:

London, Brussels, Manchester, Bristol, Cardiff, Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Isle of Man


This practical training session is designed for those that work in the field of data protection. The Level 1 and Level 2 courses taken together constitute a complete training package on the fundamentals of data protection.

This session, which is fully up to date with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 2018 and the implications of Brexit, provides a thorough grounding in the following important aspects of data protection practice:

  • data retention - the restrictions on keeping data, and how to establish a retention schedule
  • transferring data to third parties - the legal requirements for transferring data between organisations
  • the main exemptions, including 'crime and tax' and 'disclosures required by law'
  • criminal offences - an introduction to the main offences and penalties
  • the powers of the data protection regulator, including the circumstances where fines might be imposed
  • risk assessments - the basics of when and how to carry out a risk assessment
  • data destruction - methods to ensure lawful and secure destruction

The Level 2 course is designed as a natural progression from Data Protection Essential Knowledge - Level 1, although attending Data Protection Essential Knowledge - Level 1 is not a pre-requisite to attending the Level 2 session unless you are a complete beginner to data protection.

Attendance on this course can be used as credit towards gaining the Practitioner Certificate in Data Protection.
