The Data Protection module sets out essential knowledge relating to data protection concepts and principles, data subject rights, the implementation of data protection policies and measures, and regulatory compliance. It is more important than ever that the people working with often sensitive personal data have the skills to do so securely and legally. The personal consequences for individuals of a breach of the security of their personal data can be substantial, as can be the legal and commercial consequences for organizations. Skills for data protection are needed for increasing numbers of workers—ICDL Data Protection delivers these skills.

Failure to comply with GDPR exposes organizations to unprecedented regulatory, financial, and reputational risk resulting in sizeable fines for serious breaches.
