While securing data is a company obligation, employees within a company are responsible for securing that data. The ICO expects companies to have internal policies and to discipline staff who break those rules. When the ICO investigates a data breach they routinely ask which policies were violated and what sanctions have been taken against the people who broke them.
Everyone is responsible for data protection and privacy by law, and so our brand new on-demand foundation course aims to help you tackle the principles of General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR).
With the help of David Smith, Partner at JMW Solicitors, our easy to follow course meets ICO standards for GDPR compliance. David specialises in residential property rights and agency and has experience of a wide range of property litigation.
David has written or contributed to a number of books and journal articles on these topics and is highly sought after as a speaker and lecturer.
Across 4 modules, you’ll learn about the principles of GDPR, your responsibilities by law and how to ensure you, your company, your team remain compliant.
At the end of each module, there will be a test with five questions based on what you have just learned. A personalised certificate is issued at the end of each module if a pass mark of 80% or over is achieved.
Certificates count towards your CPD and can be used as evidence to the ICO that minimum standards of Data Protection have been adhered to, please keep hold of your certificates safely. For more information on the ICO recommendations found below
