This course will give an update on the proposed changes to data protection which will become the Data Protection Act 2018. This is the most significant updating of the law relating to personal data in decades and includes the (qualified) "right to be forgotten" and the creation of a statutory "data protection officer".

The course will also cover how to deal with requests for information, how to apply exemptions and exceptions and when it matters which legislation you use. It will also take you through how to deal with vexatious requests. Templates for use and practical exercises will help participants to gain confidence and knowledge when faced with tricky requests.
