Practical Guidance for Employers on the GDPR

The Data Protection Act 2018 (giving effect to the GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018 and marks a fundamental overhaul of the rules on data protection. The changes affect all those who collect, process or control personal data and so will affect most businesses and all employers.

Contrary to popular belief, the changes, although certainly not to be ignored, are not as complicated or worrying as you may think.

The training will give a clear explanation of the key changes and how they affect employers in particular. It will give clear practical guidance on what is expected of you and how you can prepare.

In short, the aim is to ensure that you as an employer understand the changes and know what practical steps to take so that you are ready for them.

This training will be of use to any business that will be affected by the GDPR and, in particular, anyone who manages staff including business owners, managers, supervisors and HR teams.
