GDPR: where are we now? data protection law webinar

GDPR: where are we now? data protection law webinar – reviewing the impact of 2018 EU and UK legislation on businesses and their insurers. How is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) responding? Find out more:

At the time that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) came into force they were heralded as pieces of legislation that would change the way in which we all lived and worked. The prospect of group actions and vast fines caused great concern. During this session we look at how businesses have reacted to the new regime, the incidents and claims that have arisen since May 2018, and take stock of the most relevant judgments since then.

By watching this webinar you will gain a greater appreciation of:

– The most recent guidance and good practice from the Information Commissioner’s Office
– How the courts are treating the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018
– How the claimant legal market is responding to the new legislation and what this means for you as a business
– The types of incident that can generate claims and the trends and patterns that we are seeing in the claims that are being pursued
