GDPR Courses

I am running public courses in 2018 for organisations who are preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018. You could go on another company’s dull, mediocre course presented by some bore in a suit. Or you could stay here and book now. Your choice.

All courses are £250 + VAT per person.

DECODING THE DPA 2018

London: August 30th (FULL) + November 6th

Manchester: September 11th + November 5th

The Data Protection Act 2018 is a bloated monster – hundreds of pages of complex sections and schedules, doing several different, overlapping jobs. It makes the GDPR work, it applies GDPR to areas that wouldn’t otherwise be covered, and contains specialised provisions for law enforcement. When wading through all of it, the most important question is this: WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO? This practice, plain-English focusses on the practicalities – when will you need a policy document? Who is covered by the law enforcement provisions? How do the exemptions work (AKA: where is Section 29?). Cut through the legalese and join this course to find out what the law is really about.

HOW TO BE A DPO

Manchester: September 6th / November 12th

London: September 10th / November 1st

Especially if you’ve been thrown in at the DP deep end, being a DPO is a daunting prospect. How do you know when information can or should be disclosed? When should you report an incident to the Information Commissioner? What does avoiding conflicts of interests mean, and in a small organisation, how do you avoid compromising your independence? What happens when your organisation just won’t comply? This is not a classic DP A-Z course – How to Be A DPO is about developing the skills to be an effective and efficient DPO. You will learn how to decode GDPR and DPA 2018, what to use and what to ignore, and how to give the best advice.

DECODING THE GDPR: London (November 8th) 

The aim of the course is to help organisations still preparing for GDPR to put together a solid action plan, develop procedures to deal with the GDPR challenges, and start to build structures to incorporate Data Protection into their policies and decision making.

Any course can be run in-house either for single organisations or groups of organisations working together. If you would like one of these courses to happen in your city or area, find a few other organisations who would also like to attend the course and let 2040 know. If you can find 5 people who want to attend, a course might well be viable. If you’re willing to host a course and do the admin, contact 2040 and we will arrange it with you.
