It is vital that those who collect and use personal data maintain the confidence of those who are asked to provide it. This doesn’t just mean data stored on a computer, and typically refers to information such as names, addresses and telephone numbers. The Data Protection Act 1998 provides a means to ensure confidence is maintained.

This online course will provide you and your workers with a general overview of the Data Protection Act (DPA) and its implications in the workplace. The training material is followed by a short assessment to ensure thorough understanding.
