This course is an introductory level course for all those that are new to data protection, or those that require a refresher on the fundamental concepts. It is designed for people who work with, or will work with, data protection issues on a regular basis.

This invaluable and practical training session, which is fully up to date with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 2018 and the likely implications of Brexit (during the UK’s transition period and beyond), examines core concepts of practical data protection compliance, including:

  • how to lawfully collect data – transparency and accountability requirements
  • what can and cannot be done with staff information and customer information
  • introduction to all data protection principles
  • introduction to the rights of individuals, such as customers and staff, in respect of data held by your organisation
  • the legal requirements for gathering information for marketing purposes
  • the rules that apply to using special categories of personal data ( e.g. medical and health information, genetic data, information on sexual orientation, ethnicity data )
  • an introduction to the restrictions on sending personal data abroad
  • the legal requirements for outsourcing personal data processing operations, e.g. payroll, call-centres, private investigators and confidential waste management companies

A discount is available for delegates booking both Data Protection Essential Knowledge - Level 1 and Data Protection Essential Knowledge - Level 2 - see below.

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