Information and Cyber Security

Overview

If personal information is not recorded accurately, or is lost or disclosed to unauthorised people, then the implications for that person and for your organisation, could be extremely serious.

With the advent of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) coming into effect in May 2018, data security issues and courses to educate people working with information have become even more important.

Minimise the risks of a data leak and boost your information security knowledge with this short information security training course.

About this course

This security awareness training course demonstrates the importance of keeping data secure and lays out the 'do's' and 'don'ts' of information security. It also provides guidance as to what to do if you believe information you hold might be at risk.

On course completion you will automatically get a course certificate with your name, the CPD hours earned, the date and learning objectives covered.

This data protection training for staff course also contains additional resource materials, a set of useful links and a handy refresher guide.
