Description

THIS SESSION IS NOW FULL. We are now working to host a further session later in May 2018. Please email us at training@civicostraining.org to be advised of the new date.

The General Data Protection Regulation (commonly known as GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in decades. It aims to protect citizens from privacy and data breaches in a world that is vastly different from 1995, when the last laws were put in place. If your workplace maintains data on clients or other individuals, it is essential that you get up to speed with the new law.

The enforcement date is 25 May 2018. From then, non-complying organisations will face heavy fines.
Are You Ready?

Civicos Training has designed this special one-day training session, covering all the main aspects of the new law. Keeping jargon to a minimum, and using slides, handouts, a workbook and group-work, we look at the key articles of GDPR, and tell you what you need to do to be compliant. We cover:

  • The purpose and application of the GDPR
  • What can go wrong?
  • Types of personal data
  • GDPR principles
  • Processing personal data
  • Myths and realities
  • Who can you give information to?
  • Our eight rights
  • Children
  • Keeping data secure
  • Do’s and Don’ts
  • Scenarios
  • FAQs

    Do I have to book using Eventbrite?

    No. You can simply contact us at training@civicostraining.org with your name, organisation, billing address and a note of any access issues. We will issue an invoice in advance of your attendance.

    What refreshments are served at the training?

    Two free rounds of tea, coffee and biscuits are served on arrival and at mid-morning. There is also a sandwich and soup lunch served as part of the ticket cost.

    Is there disabled access?

    The venue is fully accessible. Please let us know in advance of any access requirements.

    What can/can't I bring to the event?

    No need to bring equipment or laptop unless we specifically ask in the training descriptor. Pen and paper may be handy for notes.

    Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

    If you want to transfer to another training course, please contact us with five or more days’ notice at training@civicostraining.org

    Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

    No need

    What is the refund policy?

We will always attempt to place you on a later version of the same course, or transfer your booking to another course at no extra cost. However, if you cancel with less than the required notice, we do resrve the right to charge for the full cost of the course
