Course Description 

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into effect in May 2018 marking the biggest change in data protection law for 20 years. The new Regulation will impose many legal obligations on organisations that control or process data and give new rights to those whose personal data is being held. The financial penalties for non-compliance are substantial so it is essential that your organisation is fully prepared as early as possible. 

GDPR applies to all organisations, however big or small. At this half-day workshop you’ll learn about the principles of GDPR and start to develop your practical 6-point plan for getting your organisation safe, secure and compliant. 

Aims and Objectives

During the session we will cover:

  • Principles of GDPR
  • Data reviews
  • Identifying data types
  • Planning data
  • Data cleansing
  • Data storage
  • Data breach plan
  • Q and A
