The benefits of the Data Protection online training course for you and your business
Firms that deal with personal information about their customers must be registered data controllers and as such they make various promises to the Information Commissioner with regard to compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
It is critical that all those involved in the processing or keeping safe of this data are aware of the laws that apply.
Firms can face heavy fines for breaches of the Data Protection Act and those handling data must be aware of the pitfalls of mis-directed marketing, allowing contact from third parties and passing information to other firms. Some passing of information is expressly forbidden whilst other sharing is entirely allowable. Knowledge in this area is essential in nearly all areas of business in order to avoid loss of reputation and potentially severe sanctions.
