Overview:

Brexit is coming. Are you prepared?

Deal or no deal. Whatever the outcome, Brexit will affect you, and preparation is vital.

Take this course to learn about the Brexit draft regulations as we explore what a no deal Brexit could mean for data protection in your organisation.

The course also provides an overview on how the GDPR has been incorporated into UK law and identifies specifically how the UK has deployed the various GDPR derogations, as well as setting out how the UK regime will work. You will also learn the key differences between the GDPR and the Data Protection Act (2018).

Description

The Data Protection Act 2018 Distance Learning course outline

The DPA came into effect in May 2018. It incorporates the GDPR into UK law and replaces the DPA 1998. This course provides you with an overview of the differences between the GDPR and the DPA 2018.

The UK invoked Article 50 on 29 March 2017, meaning the UK is scheduled to leave the EU on Friday, 29 March 2019. As the GDPR is a European regulation, many are questioning what this means in relation to Brexit.

This course covers the similarities and differences between the DPA 2018 and the GDPR; and how the Brexit draft regulations, or a no deal Brexit, will affect data protection in your organisation.


Why choose distance learning?

Distance learning lets you learn in your own time from the comfort of your own home or office. Stop and start the recording according to your schedule, repeat modules that you want to go over again or skip parts that cover familiar topics. If you have a busy schedule and cannot commit to a whole day’s uninterrupted training, this is the solution for you.

Because this is a recorded session, you get just the undiluted core content, delivered in the most time-efficient manner, without any of the interruptions normally associated with a classroom course.
