DATA PROTECTION - GETTING IT RIGHT
The General Data Protection Regulation came into force on 25 May 2018 along with the Data Protection Act 2018, replacing the Data Protection Act of 1998.
This course guides you through the requirements of both pieces of legislation to ensure that your council remains compliant. Your council needs to manage, review and record how it deals with data protection, along with subject access requests and data breaches.
This course is recommended for all clerks and councillors involved in compliance.

The changes brought about by the General Data Protection Regulations and the Data Protection Act 2018.
The actions that need to be taken by a council to ensure compliance.
How to minimise the risk of a data breach.
