Course description

A course by Quorum Training - part of the Wilmington Group

An Introduction to Data Protection and General Data Protection Regulation - 1-day course on data protection rules

All businesses operating in the UK hold information about individuals (whether they be employees, customers or anyone else) and so are affected by data protection laws. Since failure to comply with requirements can result in regulatory action and criminal as well as civil liability, no organisation can afford to ignore the issue of data protection.

And now there is the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which builds on existing legislation (still the 8 Data Protection Principles), but introduces some substantial new aspects, including for example that fines for non-compliance can be an eye watering €20m or 4% of annual Group turnover! (Brexit is not an escape clause – the GDPR comes into full effect UK in May 2018, when the UK will still be in the EU.) And there is also a new Privacy Regulation to come into force in the same time scale.

This course is aimed at lawyers, compliance officers, IT managers, directors and other professionals in companies and in public authorities. It provides a practical guide to how data protection works and how the principles must be applied in a variety of contexts, and how to get ready for the GDPR and other new EU developments in data protection.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Anyone who has responsibility for compliance, maintaining databases or those dealing with marketing in their organisations.
