The Data Protection module covers important knowledge relating to data protection concepts and principles, data subject rights, data protection policies and measures, and regulatory compliance.
With more and more activities and transactions going digital, a growing number of workers find themselves handling sensitive personal data. It is more important than ever that the people working with personal data have the skills to do so securely and legally.
The personal consequences for individuals of a breach of the security of their personal data can be substantial, as can be the legal and commercial consequences for organisations. An understanding of data protection concepts is increasingly valued by employers. This module is relevant for organisations inside and outside the European Union.
