Information Governance Training
“The instructor was an expert in Data Protection law, and by sharing examples from her real world experience was able to reach students at varying levels of familiarity with the DPA ”
All organisations need to have in place information governance arrangements that are both fit for purpose and compliant with the law.
We have a dedicated team with proven expertise in providing training, advice and systems solutions both in data protection and privacy law, and the law relating to public access to information.
In order to comply with data protection legislation, organisations responsible for handling personal information are under an obligation to have in place robust systems and to ensure that staff are properly and appropriately trained in their use. Our team can deliver training at both general and specialist levels on a range of topics including:
- Handling subject access requests
- Drafting and using fair processing notices
- Using personal data for marketing proposes
- Sharing personal data
- Privacy and confidentiality
- Applying data protection exemptions
- Transferring personal data outside the EEA
- Records Management and the DPA
Our team also advises on the application of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Environmental Information Regulations (EIR). We have provided specialist training to information governance leads working in health, education, housing, finance, local and central government, and a range of regulatory bodies. Our expertise in data protection means that we are particularly well placed to provide training in relation to the complex interface between the Data Protection Act and FOIA.
