Approved by CPD

If you or your organisation handles personal information about individuals you have legal obligations to protect that information.

The benefits of good data safety are numerous and include, good business practice, the protection of people’s rights and the protection of your organisations reputation.

In recent years some companies and individuals have experienced serious legal consequences for data protection breaches and this highlights why it is so important to get it right.

Training should be a vital part of any company’s data protection policy.
