This training course is designed to give an overview of Data and Information Governance and the requirements to support and deliver an effective governance framework in your organisation. Data and Information Governance involves the management of information and how to establish a framework for employees to handle data through robust policies and procedures.
The legal framework governing the use of personal data can be complex and different across regions. Hence, this course will help its participants in understanding those complexities and what standards should be met for information governance and security. Governance functions are now moving towards automation of secure data retention, disposal, extraction, and archiving.
Why is this “Data and Information Governance Course” relevant in today’s times? Individuals who work with data, especially that of confidential in nature, are required to have a full understanding of their responsibilities regarding the information and confidentiality clauses that they can be held accountable for, including laws like the Data Protection Act and Consumer Rights Act.
This training also draws attention to the risks of keeping inaccurate or inconsistent records, along with the conventional best practice for record storage. Poor record-keeping not only endangers your clients/customers but also places your staff at risk of making flawed judgements based on the misinformation provided.
This training course will empower you with the knowledge in understanding how to use data and information governance principles and standards in your daily work.
