GDPR (morning session)

In this session we will review the General Data Protection Regulation 2016 ('GDPR') which became law on 25th May 2018.

It has been a huge change for both the public and private sector. Almost four months on we will look at how it has worked and at the detail of the new Data Protection Act 2018. We will specifically look at:

  • A reminder of what the GDPR is
  • The Data Protection Act 2018
  • How are the grounds for processing working in practice?
  • Why 'consent' is harder
  • Privacy Notices – are we providing enough?
  • What does compliance look like and what still needs to be done?
  • No requirement for a Data Protection Officer but who is doing the work?
  • New guidance on requests for personal information
  • New fee structure for registration
  • Data security and the obligation to report breaches within 72 hours

FOI (afternoon sessions)

This session will cover handling requests under the Freedom of Information Act and Environmental Information Regulations and how to handle vexatious requests.

  • Freedom of Information including the section 40 (personal data) exemption
  • Environmental Information Regulations
  • Vexatious requests – tell-tale signs that you have one and what to do about it

Who Should Attend?

These courses are suitable for both Clerks and Councillors
