The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came fully into effect in May 2019 bringing significant change to data protection law in Ireland.
This course is a step-by-step guide to GDPR and will help you understand what you should be doing now to make sure you are fully compliant. The course will explain the new rules regarding the legal basis for processing, consent, privacy notices, control of personal data, mandatory breach reporting, complaints, the appointment of DPOs and penalties. The financial penalties for non-compliance could be very substantial so it is absolutely vital that the people in your organisation are fully trained to understand their legal responsibilities regarding the use of personal data.
This course is suitable for compliance officers, HR staff, legal advisors, IT administrators, marketing professionals, company secretaries, directors and anyone with a responsibility for managing data or advising on data protection issues.
A detailed knowledge of data protection law is not essential to attend this course.
