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 of the below courses can be adapted for an in-house course.

All courses are £250 + VAT per person.

*NEW COURSE* GDPR RIGHTS

London: December 10th 2018

Contact 2040 to express an interest in other locations

Everything you need to know about subject access and other rights like the right to be forgotten and objection. Course includes understanding the effect of the DPA 2018 exemptions and the impact of recent court cases like Dawson-Damer vs Taylor Wessing. Does old case law still apply? Can we refuse a request because of why the person asked? Does GDPR have a ‘vexatious’ exemption? All these questions and more will be answered. This course will help you put together a robust and effective programme to deal fairly and sensibly with rights requests of all shapes and sizes.

DECODING THE DPA 2018

London: November 6th 2018 (FULL) + 28th January 2018

Belfast: January 10th 2019 (FULL – email 2040 for more information)

Edinburgh: 4th December 2018

The Data Protection Act 2018 is a 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 plain-English course 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

London: November 1st 2018 (FULL) + 29th January 2019

Manchester: November 12th 2018 + 4th February 2019

Belfast: November 29th 2018 (FULL – email 2040 for more information)

Edinburgh: 3rd December 2018

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.
