Data Protection Online E-learning Course.


The data protection legislation (or data protection act as it’s sometimes called) is designed to ensure that personal information (data) is not processed without the knowledge (and in certain cases) the consent of the data subject (i.e. the person or organisation that the information is about) is processed is accurate and to enforce a set of standards for the processing of the information.

The data protection e-learning course has been created to give a basic awareness and knowledge on the important legislation surrounding this subject. The course provides a highly engaging way to understand the area of data protection. The course can be accessed by anyone with an internet connection so it can also be used for people working away from your business premises but who may be handling data.
