Managing CCTV and data protection


Get Ahead
in Data Protection

with the managing CCTV Course

Do you operate CCTV systems, and need to understand how CCTV interacts with data protection legislation? Want to understand your compliance obligations?

Then our Data Protection and CCTV course will help you to navigate the complex area of data protection and CCTV, allowing you to feel prepared, and confident, in ensuring you have implemented the correct measures, have the appropriate documentation in place, and your team feels empowered to make decisions.

The course examines the data protection legislation within the UK, and how that applies to CCTV operations. You will learn what you need to do for new CCTV, existing systems, and the steps to take when decommissioning. Alongside the practical advice you will gain an understanding of the practical side of the legislation, and how it protects the data subject’s rights, its benefits, and the most simple and effective ways to ensure compliance.

DPAS offers interactive courses, that encourage delegates to participate throughout, allowing you time to discuss and share your own experience with other attendees. You will also talk through real life practical scenarios to aid with your learning, giving you a real hands-on experience, preparing you to apply the skills in your role.

When you choose DPAS as your training provider, you get more than just a day’s training. We will provide you with free resources to kickstart the implementation of your new knowledge.
