Data protection law in Ireland is about to undergo significant change. The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May 2016 and you have until May 2018 to become fully compliant.
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 data protection regime. It 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 your organisation is fully prepared as early as possible.
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 the current law is not essential to attend this course.
