Prepare for compliance with the new EU Data Protection regulations, understand the requirements and how that impacts you and your organisation. Understand the implications of Brexit on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Effective data protection is a legal requirement for all businesses and other organizations which acquire, store and process people's personal information, including sensitive personal details (e.g. medical history, financial details, religious affiliation and more).
The consequences of a data breach (personal information being lost, stolen or destroyed, either accidentally or deliberately) can be potentially large, with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) being able to impose arbitrary financial penalties of up to £500,000, and the loss of confidence and damage to reputation resulting from the inevitable publicity in the press and other media. Businesses and other organizations must ensure that they are compliant with current data protection regulations, and can plan effectively for compliance with upcoming EU Data protection regulations.
The intended audience is those requiring a practical understanding current UK Data Protection requirements, and the current and proposed EU Data Protection regulations
