Data Protection / UK GDPR Awareness

Training Course for staff that are accountable for working with personal data.

Course Description

In our increasingly interconnected world, where information flows freely across digital channels, the need to safeguard personal and sensitive data has never been more crucial.  

As technology evolves, so do the potential risks and threats to the privacy and security of personal and organisational information. This Data Protection Awareness Training is designed to empower you with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the complex landscape of data protection and how to use the data protection act.  

Whether you are an employee, a manager, or a business owner, understanding the principles of data protection is not only essential for compliance with regulations but also vital for maintaining trust with stakeholders.  

On this Data Protection Awareness Course, we delve into the fundamental concepts, best practices, and legal frameworks that underpin effective data protection strategies.  


This course is delivered virtually via Team or Zoom, depending on your requirements. You can combine awareness training to another data protection course to be delivered onsite at your request. Talk to us about options.
