Why book this course?
All businesses that hold personal data (e.g. customer names, contact details, email) are required to be compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Act (UK DPA) 2018. There is another regulation, Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR), that businesses also need to adopt.
While data protection can feel like a restriction on a business’s ability to function, it doesn’t need to be this way. Our course will give you a sound understanding of UK data protection laws and how to use them, enabling your business to operate more effectively and protect its staff and customers.
