Course overview

The data protection regime in the UK has not stood still since the introduction of GDPR. New guidance from the Information Commissioner and regular enforcement actions by the ICO and the EU enable us to more clearly interpret how the law should be applied. There are also new ways to handle international data transfers and some interesting developments in the governance of Artificial Intelligence.

However, the most important changes to come in the near future are contained in the Governments new Data Protection and Digital Information (No 2) Bill. The Bill makes changes to the administrative requirements of GDPR, Subject Access Requests, Data Protection Officers and the role of the ICO.

This half-day course will provide an essential update for anyone responsible for data protection compliance within their organisation. Attendance will also help you to demonstrate your ongoing commitment to compliance with data protection laws, as required by the ICO.

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

  • The key provisions of the new Data Protection and Digital Information (No 2) Bill
  • The background and reasons for recent enforcement actions
  • The key messages coming from the ICO, the European Data Protection Board and other EU regulators
  • The key compliance areas that organisations should be focused on throughout 2024/25
