Solicitors frequently share personal data with other organisations or individuals.

However, it is essential to establish the legal basis and requirements for doing this and with the growing public awareness of data protection, sharing could be challenged by data subjects, with possible complaints to the Information Commissioner's Office.  

This half-day course will consider the law, principles and practice of data sharing, including different types of sharing, to ensure 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.
