On 25 May 2018 we see the introduction of the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – one of the most notable changes to data protection law in the UK in two decades, since the Data Protection Act was first introduced in 1998 . This will mean organisations EU-wide will now need to carry out significant work to evaluate their existing processes and policies around how they use, handle and store private information.
On this comprehensive one-day course our consultants will explain, in depth, detail of the new regulation, highlighting differences between the current and new regulation, and show you how to become fully compliant.
The introduction of the new regulation brings to the fore many new legal obligations for your organisation, specifically within areas of your business that control or process data. Individuals, whose personal data you hold, will also, be protected by new rights. Because of the new legal implications, financial penalties for non-compliance will prove substantial so it is essential that your organisation is prepared for these regulatory changes as soon as possible
New rules regarding the legalities of processing, consent, privacy notices, control of personal data, mandatory breach reporting, complaints and penalties will also be explained in detail, along with an opportunity to further explore areas that you identify as particularly relevant to your organisation. Full details of course content can be found below.
This course is targeted at any individual within your organisation with responsibility for data management or data protection issues. This may include employees working in roles such as company secretary, director, compliance officer, HR management, legal advisor, and IT management. Delegates do not need to have a detailed understanding of the current law to take part in this course.
