Data Security & UK GDPR

Data Protection training resources for your staff

  • The risk to your organisation – the Information Commissioner reports that mistakes and oversights by staff continue to be a major cause of data breaches.
  • Raising staff awareness is your best defence – the Data Security range includes online training and reference booklets designed to make your staff aware of the steps they must take to keep your firm’s data safe.

How do you protect your firm?

Treat your data as a valuable asset

Your organisation must have policies and procedures to protect and secure personal information, and your staff must understand the importance of adherence to these as they handle personal data in any format.

Make your employees aware of the risks

If a data breach occurs, the inevitable question will be: “What were you doing to guard against it?” The Data Security range enables you to demonstrate meeting ongoing obligations to raise staff awareness and understanding of key principles.
