The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to come into force in May 2018, and introduces the greatest changes to data protection legislation in over 20 years.
Whilst the GDPR will continue to apply to ‘personal data’, the GDPR’s definition of this is broader than that of the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1988; During this session, lecturer Robert Edwards will remind viewers of the rights contained within the DPA and will compare these against those within the GDPR.
In addition, consideration will be given to the changes to sensitive personal data, also known as ‘special categories of personal data’, which will include biometric and genetic data when processed to uniquely identify an individual.
Developed as an introduction to, or reminder for, practitioners of all levels, this webinar will ensure that viewers are aware of both the forthcoming changes to GDPR and their own obligations in terms of data protection.
