Course overview

The COVID-19 pandemic is placing unprecedented challenges on organisations. As restrictions in the UK continue to ease, organisations are asking how they can remain compliant with data privacy laws whilst dealing with urgent data sharing priorities, track and trace obligations, remote working and reduced staffing levels.

This 2-hour webinar will help anyone responsible for data protection compliance deal with the impact of Coronavirus and the many ongoing challenges. Our expert presenter will highlight the relevant data privacy requirements, the messages coming from the ICO and the key compliance areas that organisations should be focused on over the coming months. 

You will have the opportunity to ask the presenter questions throughout the course, as well as benefiting from hearing other delegate's questions and concerns.

Attendance will also help organisations demonstrate their ongoing commitment to compliance with data protection laws that the ICO now demands.
