This course is designed to assist the person responsible for data protection and GDPR within the law firm in ensuring their practice is compliant with data protection regulations. Under the Data Protection Act 1998 it is not a requirement to have a nominated Data Protection Officer (DPO) but under the new General Data Protection Regulation in force from 25 May 2018, you may find that you need to appoint one. Whether you are the managing partner, compliance officer or data protection officer, this course is for you.
Data protection and GDPR pose many challenges for law firms. Businesses that fall foul of the data protection regulations have often found it difficult or impossible to recover from the effect of adverse publicity. Non-compliance can be very costly. At the moment the potential civil monetary penalties of up to £500,000 can have a serious impact on any practice, but from 25 May 2018 under GDPR the monetary penalties rise to up to 4% of your annual global turnover or €20 million.
This practical course addresses the most important obligations of the person responsible for compliance within the law firm. It covers the actions which need to be taken to reduce risk and to avoid breaches from occurring within their practice. The course will give a practical insight on the requirements for compliance and will help you establish a successful data protection programme under GDPR.
