The Certificate in Managing Data Protection Compliance is made of two units:
Data Protection Compliance — covers the fundamental concepts of data protection law including key definitions and the data protection principles, and looks at basic measures organisations can take to comply with relevant parts of the legislation.
Applying Data Protection Law in Practice — builds on the unit above to develop knowledge about how to apply the legal requirements in a practical setting. This covers a range of complex scenarios and introduces good practice set out in relevant codes of practice, as well as how the use of information governance tools can facilitate compliance.
Course Delivery Options
The Virtual course takes place over three weeks: with two days per week each week and one day per week and one day in the third week. The classroom based course has 3 days virtual learning and 2 days in a classroom.
