Accountability is one of the data protection principles - it makes data controllers responsible for complying with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and furthermore, demonstrate this compliance.

The half-day course will consider what is actually meant by ‘accountability’ and will include a detailed consideration of what should form an ‘accountability portfolio’ and the activities necessary to demonstrate compliance.

This seminar is one of a four part data protection series, examining key aspects of compliance in detail. Click here to view the others.
