This one day EU Data Protection Regulation Workshop is intended to be interactive so that the delegates grasp a detailed understanding of the proposed changes to the existing data protection law (The Data Protection Act 1998) and how the changes under the General Data Protection Regulation will work in an everyday practical situation. The workshop will be based on the final text version of the Regulation.
Post ‘Brexit’, If the UK wishes to share, or store personal data about citizens of the EU we will need to comply with the existing EU Directive and the new GDPR Regulation. The UK will therefore have to comply, to the letter, of the new EU regulation. In a nutshell, now the UK has decided to leave the EU, if we wish to trade with the EU we will need to comply in full with EU Data Protection Laws; we will therefore need to embrace GDPR regardless of whether we are in or out of the EU club.
The GDPR will become law on 25th May 2018 well before the two year countdown triggered by Article 50, and it is doubtful given the other time pressures upon Parliament that this legislation will be amended anytime soon.
Following requests from attendees of previous RQA events we are pleased to offer course material in PDF format for delegates attending this course.
The material will be emailed in advance of the course and RQA will not be providing any printed copies of the course notes during the training itself. Delegates wishing to have a hard copy of the notes should print these in advance to bring with them. Alternatively delegates are welcome to bring along their own portable devices to view the material during the training sessions.
Hotel accommodation is not included in the course fees. Accommodation should be booked direct with hotels in Edinburgh. The following link will take you to a number of hotels where special rates have been negotiated. This is a service not run by RQA. http://www.successfuleventslive.co.uk/5th_Global_QA_Conference_2017
