Data is handled, or potentially handled, by every single person within a firm, and it is therefore crucial that they are able to understand the regulation around data, its importance and how it should be handled. This applies to everyone in a financial advice business, as well as the Data Protection Officer who has ultimate oversight of the data protection policies within a firm.

Ensuring everyone in your firm is fully aware of the regulatory responsibilities in this regard will help to protect your client’s data, and also protect your firm from making any unintentional breaches.
