Many workers are now beginning to value webinars and online courses as a way to keep productive in uncertain times. If you're looking to brush up on your data protection procedures then this webinar, produced by the ICO, is a good place to start.

Since the introduction of GDPR, the ICO recorded a substantial rise in both the volume of personal data breaches received and the frequency and breadth of advice requested by controllers. Although the majority of these required no further action, the webinar was produced to give Data Protection Officers a better understanding of the actions they would be required to take in the event of a personal data breach.

The webinar is under an hour long and provides a great amount of helpful advice and information for Data Protection Officers. There is a short scenario that viewers are asked to read before viewing the webinar, as this is used throughout to help explain the key aspects of reporting personal data breaches.

It's never too late to brush up on existing data protection policies, as although personal data breaches seem unlikely, they require swift action to prevent further damages or fines.
