Free Data Protection training videos - now available.

John Ghent - 10 September 2015

We have recently updated our online resource, PrivacyEngine, with hours of training videos. These videos which are broken up into digestible short videos cover all the fundamentals of data protection. Some areas covered are;

  • Data Quality – We set out how the legislation requires organisations to ensure that the data is kept as accurate as possible in order to achieve the objectives for which it is held. 
  • Data Processor Contracts – The Data Protection legislation is a bit unhelpful regarding the Data Processor contract obligation; we provide an overview of what needs to be considered.
  • Appropriate Data Processing - Rules 2, 3 and 6 of the Irish Data Protection legislation set out the criteria for acceptable and appropriate use of personal data. We cover these in this video.
  • Safe and Secure – Assuming that a Data Controller has acquired the personal data in a lawful and compliant manner, the ongoing security of that data becomes a constant challenge. We take a look this requirement in this video.
  • Terms and Definitions – The Data Protection Acts use some specific terms and references. It is important to understand these definitions, in order to appreciate the focus of the legislation.
  • Acquiring information – While all eight of the Data Protection Rules have equal weighting under the legislation, it has been argued that getting Rule 1 correct is critical to compliance. We walk you through this process in this video.
  • Subject Access Request – we take a look at the process by which an organisation should respond to a Subject Access Request.

In addition to these videos, we also provide a comprehensive 20 minute video which provides an introduction to the data protection legislation.
