Acquisition of Communications Data: Replacing RIPA Webinar

The legislation relating to the Acquisition of Communications Data has changed.
Chapter 2 of Part 1 of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA) has been replaced by the Investigatory Powers Act 2016.

This webinar details the key changes including the new roles and processes for acquiring communications data for the purposes of investigations. Our expert speaker will explain the new categories of data available, including entity data and event data.

The serious crime threshold is explained together with when it applies and how it relates to the category of data available for investigators.

The role of OCDA, the Office for Communications Data Authorisations will be discussed.

Reference will be made to the Communications Data Codes of Practice and the changed roles of designated persons who used to authorise acquisition under the repealed RIPA regime.

The role of the National Anti-Fraud Network (NAFN) as a SPOC for certain authorities is also explained.

This webinar is suitable for all those who may lawfully acquire communications data for the purposes of criminal investigations including trading standards officers, environmental health officers, fraud investigators and regulators.

What our clients say about us

    I highly recommend the GDPR Practitioner Certificate - Ibrahim is an excellent trainer, highly knowledgeable, and willing to spend time discussing specific queries that learners had. Ibrahim presents data protection concepts in an easy to understand way and he has a very engaging manner. The various course resources, including the GDPR Handbook and the online resource lab, were invaluable. JB, Wythenshawe Community Housing Group

    Great, swift and professional administrative assistance was provided before, during and after the course and this is what had made me choose to take this course instead of CIPP, as the latter course facilitator wasn\'t very responsive. So, I really hope that the person who is behind it all, if not a whole team, are properly valued by their bosses. They are doing a great job! I consider ActNow, the best training company in law and surveillance out there! And it\'s always an immense pleasure and privilege to be able to enrol on one of your courses. So, I consider myself very lucky in that respect. MP, Southwark Council

    This was a really excellent course. I was not expecting to learn as much - or dare I say it - enjoy the course! And when I got back to the day job, I realised how much I had learned. DB, London Legacy Development Corporation

    Would thoroughly recommend this course. The content is excellent, with lots of practical examples and case studies. It is also an opportunity to discuss real life workplace GDPR conundrums with other experts, which is also invaluable. CD, Kent County Council

    The course was a real eye opener. As someone who has worked for decades with complex legislation, I found that the course helped me unravel aspects of GDPR and DPA 2018 which I\'d previously struggled to navigate. Kt, West London NHS Trust
