Understanding Data Protection and Data Security

NCFE CACHE Level 2 Certificate


Data protection compliance is an essential legal requirement for all organisations.

Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018, it is more vital than ever that everyone who works with personal data understands the laws and acts in compliance, as the penalties can be severe.
