Understanding Data Protection Law 15/11/19

Data Protection Law may initially seem like an overly-complicated set of hoops to jump through that makes little difference to our clients, but if understood properly, Data Protection Law helps us to be constantly mindful of the inherent dignity that each individual we support has, and to ensure that our service remains transparent and accountable to those we work with.

The GDPR does not stop data being used to help our clients, but simply makes sure we process data in a way which keeps our clients safe and respect their right to a private life.

On completion of this course you will have:

  • An awareness and basic understanding of Data Protection Law
  • An understanding of the legal definitions of personal data, special category data, data processing, lawful bases for processing and data security.
  • The information needed to know when data processing in our everyday work is lawful
  • An Awareness of the rights that every individual has relating to their data
  • An understanding of how data processing presents a risk to individuals
  • An understanding of what constitutes a data breach and what to do if one is identified.
