Data Protection CPD - Course Overview
Any organisation handling information about individuals, whether online or off-line, has several legal obligations to protect that information and these obligations are governed by the Data Protection Act 1998. Lawyers practising in the area of data protection will need to be kept up to date with recent rulings and case law to help them effectively advise their clients.
Data Protection CPD training is available in a variety of formats including webinars, seminars and conferences, each with different CPD hour offerings. Find a list of CPD Data Protection course examples below to demonstrate the types of courses available.
CPD Data Protection Courses
Data Protection Seminar – CPD hours 2
This is a basic course/seminar lasting three hours and taking place in London during July and September. It is aimed at lawyers of all levels and non-lawyers with very little knowledge of data protection. The course provides an in depth overview of the Data protection Act 1998 and as such is a great way of starting the journey to towards specialisation by further continuing professional development training.
You will learn how to recognise the relevant terminology relating to the data protection Act 1998 and how to explain the role of the Information Commissioner and the enforcement options available to you.
The seminar will provide an overview of the main issues within data security and the required action in the case of a breach in security. It provides useful information regarding the main duties of data controllers in the collection, usage and storage of sensitive data. It also covers the rights of data subjects with regards to direct marketing and investigates how to undertake direct marketing activities without encountering compliancy issues.
Data Protection for Commercial Lawyers Conference – CPD hours 6
Data Protection is a complex act with a considerable effect on a number of commercial issues. Commercial lawyers need to be kept up to date with issues related to compliance and commercial agreements.
This conference looks at a number of relevant issues such as a definition of personal data and the likely consequences of non-compliance with Data Protection laws. It discusses the roles of data processors and controllers as well as how to deal with difficult subject access requests legally. It also touches on commercial agreements and the area of online data protection and data export issues.
E-Disclosure CPR Practice Direction – Podcast – CPD hours 1
This podcast is intended to provide you with an overview of the new PD to CPR Part 31 (disclosure) and will be of most benefit to lawyers working in the field of civil litigation.
It examines the activities of the Senior Master Whitaker’s Working Party in relation to the drafting of the new E-Disclosure Practice Direction as well as the Electronic Documents Questionnaire and takes a close look at the new Practice Direction, highlighting when it can be applied.
