BCS Practitioner Certificate in Data Protection

Course Details

Name BCS Practitioner Certificate in Data Protection
DescriptionDescription There is a need to provide adequate training on the Data Protection Act 1998 "the Act" and its implications for both organisations and individuals. There are important differences between the Act and its predecessor, the Data Protection Act 1984. In particular, the Act contains important new obligations in relation to manual records and transborder data flows, a new notification system and amended principles. It is important to understand the Act in the European context. Those experienced in data protection issues, as well as those new to the subject, need to be trained so that their organisations are confident that legal compliance is continually addressed. It is necessary to identify issues requiring expert data protection advice in good time in order that organisational reputation and credibility are enhanced through relevant data protection policies and procedures. Objectives The aim of the syllabus is to promote an understanding of how the data protection principles work rather than simply focusing on the mechanics of regulation. The syllabus places the Act in the context of human rights and promotes good practice within organisations. On attaining the certificate, award holders will possess: •    an appreciation of the broader context of the Act. •    an understanding of the way in which the Act and the Privacy and Electronic •    Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 work •    a broad understanding of the way associated legislation relates to the Act •    an understanding of what has to be done to achieve compliance •    a recognised qualification in data protection Prerequisites No formal entry requirements are required for the Certificate. The exam is taken at a later date at the same location.
