UK GDPR Update 2 hours

This course has been completely updated to take into account recent developments in respect of both the UK GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 with particular emphasis on recent case law and also the changes contained in the Data Protection and Digital Information (No. 2) Bill. Delivered by a highly experienced presenter, and using a variety of case studies, delegates will leave the session better informed and equipped to deal with this ever-evolving area of practice.

Prices: £190 + VAT for the first delegate. This is a per organisation price, so up to 10 of your colleagues from the same organisation can participate at no extra charge, even if they are viewing it from a different location or at a different time. So for example, if there are 10 of you the cost per delegate would be just £19.00  each.

For smaller firms with 4 or less partners, the price is £99 + VAT, which is for a single place with no additional free places

You can participate in the course live or watch the recorded version whenever or wherever you want. In each case you will receive a recording of the complete course after the event.
