Data Security and Protection In-Person Training

Care providers can access free in-person training materials on data security and protection. Developed by the Better Security, Better Care programme, these are for use by inhouse trainers and are not for commercial usage.

To request access to the training materials, please contact us.


These free training materials have been developed from the Data Security and Protection elearning. We know that elearning doesn’t work for everyone, so we have developed materials for use in face-to-face or classroom training.

The materials are designed to be used flexibly and you are free to adapt the slides according to what would work best for your organisation and teams.

Like the elearning programme, there are four modules:

  • Module 1 – Data protection rights and responsibilities: staff responsiblities and people’s rights 
  • Module 2 – Keeping data secure: sharing confidential data and recording and disposing of data 
  • Module 3 – Threats to data security: fraud and scams; safe use of digital devices; and safe keeping of paper records 
  • Module 4 – Data breaches: what is a data breach; data confidentiality; availability of data; data integrity; and receiving data in error. 

The materials for the face-to-face programme consist of:  

  • A guide for trainers on how to use the resources
  • Session plans including suggested ways of breaking the training module up into smaller segments and gives an estimated time for each segment. 
  • PowerPoint slides including notes pages.
  • Handouts including case studies and questions.
  • Assessment options for learners.
