GDPR means the General Data Protection Regulation that took effect on 25 May 2018. All businesses, organisations and public authorities must ensure they comply with the new legislation.

Like any new legislation there will always be different interpretations of what is required until the legislation is tested in law. The information on this course represents our current view of what organisations need to do now to prepare for the GDPR. These views will inevitably change as more information becomes available from the ICO and other sources and we will update the course as new information becomes available. We will alert course participants when we update any information.

GDPR makes organisations more accountable for collecting, storing, and disposing of personal information and gives more control to individuals over how their personal data is used.

All organisations should review and enhance their data protection risk management procedures to help them prepare for the new legislation.
