Data Security:

With a dramatic increase in digital storage capacity and ever-growing demand for the sharing of information, the price of data loss has never been higher. An estimated 45% of all business travellers end up losing or leaking information. The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has the power to issue fines of up to £500,000 to organisations who lose sensitive data – but the long-term cost in damage to your company’s reputation could be far greater.

The Data Protection Act requires that organisations ensure understanding of the act, and how data protection responsibilities should be applied in practice, amongst their staff. This e-learning course is ideally suited to helping your employees understand the value of data as well as what can be done to effectively protect it.



Data Protection e-learning


We have already advocated e-learning as it is made for busy executives and individuals who can’t invest time in counseling sessions or workshops. Besides this convenience, our Data Protection program can help drastically cut down on the possibility of data theft or data loss (inadvertently by unaware travelers) so that the integrity of the organization is upheld and there is no need to opt for complete hardening and re-haul of the security infrastructure (password changes, fire wall setting changes) because of unforeseen events.


Key Benefits of the course:

  • Increase employee compliance
  • Reduce company risk
  • Educate staff about the importance of data protection
  • Minimize prosecutions
  • Guarantee uniformity of training amongst your staff
  • Create an audit trail of employee documentation.


Course Content

  • Legal responsibilities regarding data protection
  • Data confidentiality, locking devices, and passwords
  • Written documents and electronic data
  • Identifying and avoiding illegal software
  • Electronic storage
  • Travel safety and overseas considerations
  • Case studies
  • Assessment.


The course should take around 25 minutes to complete. However, the major advantage of e-learning is that courses can be taken at the user’s own pace in order to maximize learning and knowledge retention.
