Data Protection - Preparing for the GDPR

Training course carries 5 hours CPD points 

Courses take place in:

London, Edinburgh, Manchester, Glasgow and Dublin


The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is by far the biggest regulatory development in information law in 20 years. Repealing the current data protection framework, the Regulation will impose new obligations on data controllers that all organisations will have to get to grips with before the Regulation enters in to force on 25th May 2018.

This course provides delegates with a detailed insight in to the main provisions of the EU Regulation as well as the implications of Brexit. This course offers practical guidance on what organisations should start doing to ensure that they are prepared for the changes. The content includes:

  • the scope of the Regulation, including extra-territorial applicability
  • key definitions
  • the role of the lead authority
  • the principles relating to personal data processing, including a detailed analysis of ‘consent’ and ‘legitimate business interests’
  • new obligations on data processors
  • data breach notification
  • new obligations for Data Protection Officers
  • data subjects’ rights
  • data protection by design and default
  • accountability
  • codes of Conduct and Certification
  • international data transfers
  • consequences of non-compliance

Delegates attending this session must have a basic knowledge of current data protection legal requirements in order to be able to understand the material in this session. Delegates with little no existing knowledge should attend Data Protection Essential Knowledge Level 1 before attending this training course.
