The ICO exists to empower you through information.

The first two modules look at the different data protection terms and what they mean. They provide a basic understanding of data protection and help you assess the types of data your business uses.

Please note: there may be some terminology which needs updating in some of these modules, which we will update over time. However you should still find the content useful in training your staff in the key points of the relevant legislation. To make sure you're accessing the latest content, use the resources on our website rather than downloading them.
