FOI law generally involves making information publicly available. Data protection law involves keeping information private. The FOI and data protection laws are completely different but overlap when it comes to the right of access. Both laws have been overhauled recently.
This intensive one-day CPD course will offer expert insight and information on important issues when it comes to GDPR, Subject access requests, FOI and the right of access.
