Data protection legislation protects individuals’ personal data and controls how organisations use it. The EssentialSkillz Data Protection Online course explains the importance of protecting people’s data, and looks at the principles, rights and responsibilities outlined in the law.
The course also outlines the effect of Brexit on the legislative landscape. On leaving the EU, the UK incorporated the provisions of the EU GDPR into domestic data protection legislation. The EU has also granted the UK an adequacy decision, which allows personal data to flow freely from the EEA to the UK. The key principles, rights and obligations under UK GDPR remain the same as those under EU GDPR.
The course takes learners through key aspects of the legislation. It provides interactive, scenario-based examples of what these requirements mean in practice, how individuals can exercise their rights, and how to reduce the risk of data breaches.
