General Data Protection Regulations (2018) - A General Introduction

Course Objectives

This programme is designed to ensure that delegates leave the event with a working understanding of the new European General Data Protection Regulations 2018 (GDPR) which will fully replace the 1998 UK Data Protection Act in May 2018. The new GDPR places a much greater emphasis on individual compliance and organisational governance; introduces new standards and sanctions; and focuses on addressing the growing trend towards electronic processing and the requirement for transportability of personal data.

Although the act emanates from the European Parliament, the UK Information Commissioner has clearly stated that decisions made in relation to Britain's exit from Europe (Brexit) will not impact the full implementation of the regulations.
