GDPR: Privacy and Data Protection in the UK
Classroom: £329 +VAT per person
The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has seen a fundamental shift in attitudes towards privacy and data protection in the UK. In conjunction with the Data Protection Act 2018 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations the data protection regime is now tougher than ever before. It is essential that you and your organisation are able to adapt to this newly challenging environment.
This one-day course is a practical and comprehensive guide to complying with the requirements of UK data protection law. It will help you understand the definitions that are so crucial to getting your compliance right. It will also illustrate the measures and steps you need to take to satisfy the ICO, avoid complaints and still effectively run your organisation. It will help you to understand the reality of your risk and thus make informed decisions, avoid over-complicating processes and creating unnecessary difficulties.
The course is presented by data protection experts who have a clear understanding of the legal landscape and will be happy to address any concerns your organisation may have. It is carefully designed to not only be hugely informative but also interactive and enjoyable for attendees.
