When & Where?

27 April 2018
The Source Skills Academy, Sheffield


This interactive full-day training session (which combines theory-based learning with a series of interactive group sessions) gives an understanding of the duties imposed on organisations by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), which will come into force in May 2018.

Module aims

The GDPR imposes duties on those who collect, store, manage and destroy data, and will be relevant to virtually all organisations in the UK.  

This module aims to provide participants with:

  • an understanding of the main concepts of the DPA:
    • data controllers and data processors
    • personal data
    • special categories of personal data
    • data processing
    • consent
    • key data protection principles
    • individuals' rights, including subject access requests and the right to be forgotten
  • the knowledge to enable managers to ensure compliance with the GDPR at a practical level, including:
    • how to ensure that the organisation can demonstrate lawful purposes for processing data
    • the requirement for consent forms and privacy notices
    • appointing a Data Protection Officer
    • whether the organisation’s security arrangements are sufficiently robust
    • how to handle subject access requests
    • an understanding of the enforcement regime
    • an overview of the GDPR and the steps that they should be taking now to prepare for compliance in May 2018

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this module, participants will: 

  • understand the key concepts relating to data protection within their own organisation
  • be able to utilise their newly gained knowledge to prepare and implement an effective policy
  • understand the current enforcement regime
  • understand the main steps to take now to prepare for the GDPR
