The Data Protection Act 2018
Data Protection practitioners need to have a good understanding of the Data Protection Act 2018 which supplements the UK GDPR.

The DPA 2018 introduces exemptions to the normal GDPR rules as well as additional obligations when processing Special Category Data and criminal records data. It also implements, under Part 3, the Law Enforcement Directive which regulates the processing of personal data about criminal investigations and prosecutions. Part 3 applies to law enforcement agencies as well as those with investigation and prosecution powers.

This workshop will discuss the main provisions of the DPA 2018 as well as the impact of Brexit. Alongside the tutor’s expert knowledge, the case studies and exercises will enhance your knowledge of the UK data protection regime.

This in an intermediate course. You should have a working knowledge of the UK GDPR.

The Data Protection Act 2018 day provided me with a comprehensive breakdown of the content of the Act and how it integrates with the GDPR. It covered a lot of information without feeling too mindboggling and it was great to be able to ask questions and discuss real life issues that came to mind as we galloped through the legislation. At no point did I feel overwhelmed but I do feel very informed. Thanks for such a useful day (and for the sweets at the venue which helped with the after dinner slump)
