Dealing with Subject Access Requests
Classroom: £329 +VAT per person
Since the introduction of GDPR there has been a significant increase in the number of Subject Access Requests (SARs) submitted to Data Controllers by individuals (data subjects). Getting your response to a SAR wrong can have very damaging consequences: 62% of formal complaints to the Information Commissioner are in respect of mishandled SARs. It is crucial that everyone handling the requests knows exactly how to deal with them - regardless of whether they are quick-and-easy, mischievous or serious requests.
This highly practical and interactive one-day course will take you step-by-step through the process of assessing, organising, managing and recording your response to SARs in the most effective way possible.
Attending this course will help you to implement a streamlined SAR response strategy that fully meets your obligations under GDPR, takes the stress out of potentially difficult situations and helps you avoid ICO penalties or legal action from data subjects. The course is illustrated throughout with real-world scenarios and our expert presenter will happily address any queries pertinent to your organisation.
