Course overview

Since the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 became enforceable in May 2018, the Information Commissioner’s Office and other EU regulators have issued significant amounts of guidance, enforcement notices and fines.  Understanding how the GDPR has been enforced so far will help organisations to understand the future direction of enforcement policy and identify the key focus areas in coming months and years.

This half-day course will provide an essential update for anyone responsible for data protection compliance within their organisation.  Attendance will also help organisations to demonstrate their ongoing commitment to compliance with data protection laws that the ICO now demands.

During this practical and comprehensive course, our expert presenter will carefully explain...

  • The background and reasons for recent enforcement actions
  • The key messages coming from the ICO, the future influence of the European Data Protection Board and other EU regulators
  • The key compliance areas that organisations should be focused on throughout 2021 and beyond
