Course Overview

Data protection law in the UK is about to undergo the most significant changes since the introduction of the Data Protection Act in 1998. The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May 2016 and you have until May 2018 to become fully compliant. The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the enforcement date. The new law will require significant preparatory work that you should begin now.

This comprehensive one-day course will show you how to comply with the Regulation and what will change from the existing legislation. It will explain the new rules regarding the legal basis for processing, consent, privacy notices, control of personal data, mandatory breach reporting, complaints and penalties. A more detailed breakdown of what you will learn can be seen below.

The new Regulation will impose many legal obligations on organisations that control or process data and will afford new rights to those whose personal data is being held. The financial penalties for non-compliance will be very substantial so it is absolutely vital that your organisation is fully prepared as early as possible.

Who should attend?

This course would be suitable for company secretaries,directors, compliance officers, HR staff, legal advisors, IT Administrators and anyone with a responsibility for managing data or advising on data protection issues. A detailed knowledge of the current law is not essential to attend this course.
