The purpose of this qualification is to allow you to demonstrate an understanding of data protection and data security. It will help you progress to a work role where data protection and data security knowledge is required.
Data protection compliance is an essential legal requirement for all organisations. Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018, it is more vital than ever that anyone who works with personal data understands the laws and acts in compliance. Failure to process personal or sensitive data securely and lawfully can lead to severe penalties. Making sure that your employees are acting compliantly, and handling data correctly is essential in any sector.
