Overview of GDPR 28 February425.00

Date and Time

One day course: Thursday 28 February


About the Course

For a more involved look at the main tenants of Data Protection and the GDPR, our full-day seminar dives a little deeper. This includes an examination of the role and responsibilities of the Data Protection Officer, a statutory requirement in the public sector.

There is also a practical exploration of Privacy Impact Assessments. As PIAs are recommended for all processing activities, it would be of use to managers or team members who are likely to be asked to participate in the undertaking of a PIA by the DPO in their organisation. Further, it will look at the requirements of organisations under Article 30 of the GDPR, which states that there should be adequate documentation for all data processing.
