A one day course – book your place now!

Date: 7th July 2017

The EU General Data Protection Regulation was published earlier this year. It represents the most significant global development in data protection law since the EU Data Protection Directive in 1995.

While the fundamental rules of Data Protection enshrined in current legislation remain, they have been extended and added-to so that the new law reflects modern technological developments.

There are several new important changes to be aware of. Data Processors have significant new obligations. Privacy Impact Assessments must be carried out by all organisations. One of the most significant changes is the fines regime. The new Regulation allows the Data Protection Commissioner to impose fines of up to €20m or 4% of global turnover for breaches of the law. This means that it is crucial for businesses to understand their data protection obligations and to roll out a compliance regime to avoid very significant sanctions.

This CPD certified one-day training course will provide delegates with an overview of new EU General Data Protection Regulation, and will provide insights on how to prepare for the new law.

This course will examine the core principles of the new Regulation, as well as new terms and concepts to consider. We will examine enforcement principles and powers, and the new regime of fines and penalties. The aim of the course is to provide an understanding of the new Regulation so that participants will have the tools to return to their organisations and roll out a new Data Protection compliance programme.

This and much more will be discussed throughout this intensive training day, as well as excellent Q&A opportunities with the course trainer, who is an expert in data protection, and all participants will receive 6 structured CPD points, and a full informative course pack to refer back to at any time.

Course content to be covered:

  • The core principals of the General Data Protection Regulations
  • Newly defined terms and concepts
  • Understand the roles of DPO, Joint Controller, Data Recipient
  • Enforcement principles
  • New obligations for the Data Controller and Processor
  • Enforcement powers and the new regime of administrative fines and penalties
  • Administrative and governance structures of the Supervisory Authority, the European DP Board and the EU Commission

The course would be of huge benefit to experienced DPO’s/ data controllers/ data processors, as well as those who wish to gain an insight into this new, challenging area of law. This course would also be a great follow on to those who attended CMG Event’s recent conference on the New DP Regulations.

On completion you will receive your CMG MasterClass Certificate as well as your CPD Certificate containing 5 Structured CPD Hours. Please note certificates are issued only at the close of the training course to participants who complete the full five hours.
