      Description

      Recruitment agencies' data is all about people - whether clients, candidates, or staff placed. Data protection is about more than fines - it is about handling the data ethically, transparently, and lawfully.

      Where this goes wrong, reputations are harmed. If you work for public sector clients, this can damage your relationship with them. We know that individuals are more aware of the risks with their data, and are leaving companies that do not comply.

      This workshop tells you how to manage your data, be compliant with the Data Protection Act, and the marketing regulations under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations. It's designed for non-experts, so you can ensure you comply, and safeguard your data and reputations.
