Data Protection & GDPR In‑House Training

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is enforceable in the UK from 25 May 2018.

The GDPR is more complex and far-reaching than the current Data Protection regime.  There are greater risks to your Firm for non-compliance.

Penalties include fines up to €20m or 4% of your annual global turnover (whichever is greater).

Securing compliance with the new GDPR in good time for this deadline is now very much on the Risk Management Agenda of all prudent Law Firms.

What does this mean for your Firm?

GDPR compliance requires Firms to ensure:

Training on the GDPR of all Fee Earners and Support Staff
New Policies & Procedures which are fully GDPR compliant
Relevant practical risks for the Firm and its personnel are identified and addressed
Client data collection and storage procedures are properly implemented
A demonstrable Firm-wide compliance culture in your Firm
