Data Protection Essential Knowledge - Level 1
4 Hours CPD 

Courses take place in:

Dublin, Brussels & London

 

This course, which is fully up to date with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018, is an introductory level session for all those that are new to data protection, or those that require a refresher on the fundamental concepts. It is designed for people who work with, or will work with, data protection issues on a regular basis.

This invaluable and practical training session examines core concepts of practical data protection compliance, including:

  • how data protection law applies to your organisation
  • what can and cannot be done with staff information and customer information
  • the requirements on organisations to keep data secure, and how to meet those requirements
  • the rights of individuals, such as customers and staff, in respect of data held by your organisation
  • the legal requirements for gathering and using information for marketing purposes, including the use of opt-out and opt-in clauses and using cookies on websites
  • the requirements for using CCTV cameras
  • an introduction to handling requests for information by individuals
  • the rules that apply to using special categories of personal data ( e.g. medical and health information, genetic data, information on sexual orientation, ethnicity data )
  • an introduction to the restrictions on sending personal data abroad
  • an introduction to the legal requirements for outsourcing personal data processing operations, e.g. payroll, call-centres and confidential waste management 
  • identifying which areas of your organisation need attention and remedial action
  • the role of the Data Protection Commissioner, including the fining powers under the GDPR

There will be plenty of opportunity for questions, and delegates are encouraged to bring their queries to the session.

A discount is available for delegates booking both Data Protection Essential Knowledge - Level 1 and Data Protection Essential Knowledge - Level 2 - see below.

Attendance on this course can be used as credit towards gaining the Practitioner Certificate in Data Protection.
