Course overview

Since GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 came into force the Information Commissioner’s Office and other EU regulators have issued significant amounts of guidance, enforcement notices and fines.  Understanding how GDPR has been enforced so far will help you to understand the future direction of enforcement policy and identify the key focus areas in coming months and years.

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 background and reasons for recent enforcement actions
  • The key messages coming from the ICO, the European Data Protection Board and other EU regulators
