Since the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 there has been a significant increase in public awareness of data protection issues, in particular data subject rights. 

In some sectors, this has led to a massive increase in the number of data subject requests to data controllers.

The course examines all of the data subject rights, with particular emphasis on the right of access including when rights are available to data subjects, how to respond to them and how to manage data to facilitate a response. 

It will also consider issues around client files.

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