Data Protection Act training for support staff (Principles)
This day long course covers a review of the definitions to identify when the Act is engaged and a detailed discussion (workshop style) with respect to the eight data protection principles in the context of: application forms, fair processing notices and privacy policies; direct marketing (excluding PECR); research; posting details on the Internet, data sharing, data loss and security, private use of the Internet by staff; impact of rights of access and limited business and HR functions (e.g. Retention and disposal of records). Disclosure procedures are also discussed and the course can include a brief summary of rights of access.
In this course, we normally teach data protection in the context of a few issues chosen by the client. In this way, this data protection course (e.g. how the Principles work) is always considered in the context of your organisation’s processing of personal data.
