The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force on the 25th May 2018, replacing the existing data protection framework under the EU Data Protection Directive.

As a regulation, it will not generally require transposition into Irish law (regulations have ‘direct effect’), so organisations involved in data processing of any sort need to be aware the regulation addresses them directly in terms of the obligations it imposes.

Key topics covered during the workshop:

  • The GDPR in context: what's different?
  • Data Protection Principles
  • Accountability
  • Rights of individuals (data subjects)
  • Personal data processing
  • Data protection roles
  • Subject access requests and response timelines
  • Obtaining Consent
  • Data breaches
  • Preparing for GDPR - auditing operations and staff training
  • Demonstrating GDPR compliance
