Data protection is a key duty of all organisations, public and private, which handle personal data and personal sensitive data. As well as the legal and regulatory impact of a serious data protection incident, the harm to trust, brand and reputation can be significant.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on Friday, 25th May 2018 thereby creating significant new obligations, as well as massively increased financial penalties – up to €20m or 4% of global turnover.

This one-day online course will give you a clear understanding of your organisation’s main data protection obligations and the GDPR, and how to ensure your organisation’s compliance.  It is aimed at staff who have responsibility for managing data and have a critical role in ensuring the organisation is compliant in its obligations under the GDPR but who do not necessarily work in the role of Data Protection Officer (DPO).

This Introduction to Data Protection and GDPR course will cover the following topics:

  • Context of Data Protection (The Acts), and history of privacy rights
  • Scope of application of GDPR
  • The 7 Data Protection Principles (Article 5)
  • The Key People – role of the DPO, function and powers of the ODPC, rights of the Data Subject, Data Controller(s) and Data Processor(s)
  • Risk based approach to all aspects of the implementation of GDPR
  • Sanctions and Compensation, Offences and Liability
  • Preparing for the implementation of the GDPR – Project GDPR Gap and Compliance Analysis
