An Introduction to Data Protection incorporating GDPR

Course Objectives

In May 2018 the new European framework for data protection laws were implemented in the UK, replacing previous legislation which was based upon the 1995 data protection directive.

A new Data Protection Bill was prepared by the UK government which incorporates the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) being implemented across Europe and is being heralded by the Information Commissioner's Office as being an 'evolution' of Data Protection.

This one day course provides delegates with an understanding of data protection, the eight principles enshrined within the UK's Data Protection Act, the purpose and effect of those eight principles as well as providing practical examples to demonstrate how those requirements are met. This course will also provide delegates with information about how GDPR has changed how personal data can be used by organisations after 25 May 2018.
