Data Protection Officer Handbook
As the organisation’s trusted expert and a key discussion partner, being a Data Protection Officer (DPO) requires you to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of how the organisation can be compliant with data protection law. It’s a role that requires appropriate resource and sufficient time to fulfil the duties and keep up to date with changes.
Data Protection Handbook
In the 3rd quarter of 2019/20, education was the second highest sector for data security incidents, as well as the second highest sector for falling victim to phishing campaigns, sending emails to the wrong recipients and loss of paperwork/data. Earlier this year, the Information Commissioner’s Office issued legal warnings to two primary schools for wrongly disclosing the personal data of children. It’s important to get data protection working well in your organisation to ensure the privacy and security of data.
PHRP is here to support you in your data protection role in a range of different ways; one of which is a Data Protection Officer Handbook. Containing 22 essential documents and links to additional sources of information, here’s some of the areas covered by the handbook:
- Information on data protection principles and individuals rights;
- Conditions for processing special category data;
- Documents to support risk assessment and a template risk register;
- Data breach documentation including ready to use template forms;
- Guidance on managing a subject access request; and
- Documents to support you to conduct compliance checks.
This essential resource will support a DPO to provide compliant and advice guidance to the data controller.
