GDPR in FE a Year On: An AoC Best Practice Workshop

Wednesday 16 October 2019 | London

Since the introduction of GDPR in May 2018, the way in which personal data should be handled has changed.  Many organisations are still trying to get to grips with the new legislation and how it should be applied in an educational setting.

Many organisations are still struggling to get to grips with the requirements of GDPR and are unaware of the exemptions to it made in the Data Protection Act 2018.  Internal Audits are beginning to ask searching questions as to how data is managed and are seeking assurances that this is in accordance with the new legislation.

This workshop will provide you with the current best practice and foundational knowledge necessary for your organisation to avoid costly errors and stay safe in what can be a data minefield whilst also considering what has happened since GDPR came into force.
