Failure to comply with the Data Protection Act can now result in fines of up to half a million pounds. Poor data security and poorly trained staff put your business at risk of financial penalties and reputational ruin. Yet organisations are also expected to share more and more data in today’s technology driven age to improve services and prevent tragedies.

This masterclass focuses on how Data Protection officers, and staff handling personal data, know what to keep safe, and how to try and keep it secure. It also considers what they can share and when, and gives practical tips and advice on what one of the most wordy pieces of legislation really means in practice.
