RIBA GDPR CPD: guidance on the new requirements for handling data
Replacing the Data Protection Act 1998, the GDPR requires every business, large or small, that processes personal data to be compliant with the new rules from 25 May 2018. The changes have been described as an 'evolution not a revolution'.
As businesses, you will have to review your practices to be able to show you have complied with the new requirements for handling data. The new rules also introduce enhanced rights and tougher penalties for any failings. This seminar aims to help you identify what are the areas of risk and practical steps you will need to take.
This seminar will cover:
- What is GDPR and the changes from the DPA obligations
Main changes to data protection:
- What information is covered
- Personal data and “special category” data
