We regularly provide Compliance Training to organisations in relation to a variety of topics.  Our training is given by our solicitors who are experts in their subject matter.  Topics include:


  General Topics


 Specific Topics

  • Data protection basics
  • How to prepare for GDPR
  • Freedom of Information basics
  • Direct Marketing and how to do it legally
  • Data Sharing
  • Subject Access Requests
  • Data breaches and enforcement
  • Cyber Security – the legal framework

We tailor our training to the needs of your organisation and to the audience. We take into account any pre-existing level of knowledge whether it involves training staff who deal with personal data right through to board room briefings for those making the policy decisions. 

As the only legal team to have successfully appealed a fine imposed under the Data Protection Act, our solicitors have unique insight to how the Regulator, the Information Commissioner, works. Let us help you stay up to speed with your legal requirements.

Training Feedback

“A number of the delegates who have attended BTO’s courses have commented specifically on BTO’s knowledge of Data Protection, the manner in which they put it across (in a non-lawyer fashion) and their friendly and outgoing personality. What became apparent following the courses was that staff were reciting examples BTO had delivered at the training, giving us confirmation that staff not only understood the training, but were able to remember and demonstrate what they had learned.”
