 Data Sharing in the Public Sector

 

Course Overview:

The sharing of personal data in the public sector, to improve public services and counter criminality and harm to individuals, is a growing all the time and increasingly expected of public bodies.

This course is fully up to date with the requirements of the UK GDPR, the Data Protection Act 2018, and the ICO’s Code of Practice on Data Sharing; and also looks at proposals from government which may change data sharing in the near future.


Issues covered include:

  • the meaning and types of data sharing
  • the process of deciding to share personal data, and the role of Data Protection Impact Assessments in the process
  • applying the Data Protection Principles to sharing personal data
  • powers to share data, and legal limitations
  • relevant security considerations
  • specific issues, such as sharing with law enforcement agencies, and the relevance of data protection exemptions
  • data sharing agreements
  • future considerations: the government’s National Data Strategy, and its expected ’Digital Strategy’

This course enables delegates to understand how to approach the sharing of data in the public sector. Those attending on a Classroom-basis will discuss a number of practical ‘real life’ examples and examine the different issues involved.

It is recommended that delegates attending this course have some existing knowledge of data protection. Those with no existing knowledge should attend Data Protection Essential Knowledge – Level 1 before attending this course.

The eLearning course was informative and structured well. I liked the flexibility of learning in my own time and also the exercises at the end of each chapter.”
