Data Protection 2018 - overview
Data protection and privacy law are complex and often misunderstood areas of modern professional life. The penalties for organisations and professionals who do not comply with legal requirements when handling personal information can be high, and increase with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018.
This course is aimed at all those with an investigative role and provides attendees with a comprehensive awareness of the current data protection and privacy legislation, including the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018.
Delegates will learn the key implications and requirements of the legislation, and how to apply these in their area of professional practice through a series of practical exercises and case studies. The complex legislative requirements are presented in a clear and straightforward manner to provide the fundamental grasp of legal requirements everyone needs when dealing with personal data.
The Data Protection training course can count towards the 8-day nationally recognised qualification - the Advanced Professional Certificate In Investigative Practice - or towards the 2-day Professional Award in Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act and Data Protection Act or the 2-day Professional Award in Data Protection Act and Cross Examination.
Please note: this course must be run as a 2-day course in conjunction with the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act or Cross Examination day if you’re undertaking a qualification.
