Preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR
Classroom: £289 +VAT per person
Data protection law in the UK is about to undergo the most significant changes since the Data Protection Act in 1998. The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May 2016 and you have until May 2018 to become fully compliant. The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the enforcement date.
This course is a step-by-step guide to GDPR and will help you understand what you should be doing now and in the coming months to prepare for the important changes. The course will show you how to comply with the Regulation and what will change from the existing legislation. It will explain the new rules regarding the legal basis for processing, consent, privacy notices, control of personal data, mandatory breach reporting, complaints and penalties. The financial penalties for non-compliance will be very substantial so it is absolutely vital that your organisation is fully prepared as early as possible.
