Looking to improve your knowledge of data protection? Take our BCS practitioner certificate in data protection.
Now has never been a more important time to get data protection right. The recent announcements from the Information Commissioner that British Airways are to be fined £183 million and Marriott International £99 million, together with an increase in court cases and higher awareness of rights, have put data protection in the headlines once again.
Blake Morgan runs an intensive five-day data protection training course, leading to a recognised practitioner qualification. This course is ideal for Data Protection Officers, but is also relevant for anyone with an interest in or responsibility for data protection, such as HR professionals, in-house lawyers or marketing managers.
All our courses are delivered by lawyers with proven expertise and experience in data protection and privacy law.
Undertaking this highly regarded course will demonstrate that you have acquired a deep understanding of privacy law and practice. At the end of the course you have the opportunity to take an exam to obtain the BCS Practitioner Certificate in Data Protection, a nationally recognised and externally accredited qualification which acts as the benchmark for competence, ability and performance in data protection.
We cover all the key obligations of the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018. But it’s about a lot more than just the law. You will also learn to put data protection into practice in everyday situations so your organisation can improve compliance and significantly reduce the risks of fines, claims and other enforcement action. It’s also a great opportunity to make new contacts and exchange experiences with others in the data protection field.
We will be adding new dates for 2020 soon and can also offer in-house courses for your organisation.
For more information or to sign up to one of our courses, please email Helen Bartlett.

I found it very informative and attending the course has really helped me in my DPO role. The practical examples were really useful and really helped me to consider how to approach different data protection situations.
