Practical and Engaging Training for all your Staff

DPA360 sets out in an easy to understand way what your employees need to know about data security and how to implement the 8 principles of Data Protection.

Opt-4 Directors and authors of the training course, Rosemary Smith and Jenny Moseley, collaborated with BAFTA award winning film producers, p4films, to create the animated film which brings the training messages to life.

  • the training course can be completed in half an hour - no more expensive days out of the office

  • you can demonstrate at any time that your employees have been trained and tested in Data Protection showing your privacy commitment to customers and shareholders alike

  • you'll be able to do a live online security audit

  • the management suite will prioritise your risks, by location, department and by individual member of staff so that you’ll know who needs more coaching and where your risks lie.

Tried, tested and secure. DPA360 is delivered over the web by secure encrypted servers using our Hub4 software. Certified by GlobalSign.

The Commercial Case for Online Staff Training and Auditing

Employee negligence is the highest cause of data security breaches and in many organisations there can be a significant gap between a data security policy and its implementation. No-one is immune from the threat of data loss or breaches but effective staff training can massively reduce this risk.

And there is major commercial benefit. Collecting data without the correct permissions means it can’t be used. Train staff to get it right and that data becomes the lifeblood of the organisation and a genuine asset.
