The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect on 25 May 2018. In preparation, we have devised this course to cover some of the key changes in legislation, including:

  • GDPR background and central aim
  • Types of data
  • Data controller and data processor responsibilities
  • Consent (incl. children’s personal data)
  • Privacy notices
  • Lawful processing
  • GDPR principles
  • Individuals’ rights
  • Breach notification and penalties
  • Accountability and governance
  • Transfer of data

This course provides the learner with a detailed explanation of each of these areas. A ‘Light’ version will also be available for learners that require an overview of GDPR.

Target Audience

Anyone who needs an awareness of the pending General Data Protection Regulation and an understanding of the key changes it will bring to data protection legislation in the UK.
