Introduction

The UK data protection regime is set out in the Data Protection Act 2018 and the UK General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Sanctions for non-compliance with the UK GDPR can be potentially severe, therefore it is imperative that law firm partners, managers, and their employees, understand the key principles of data protection legislation and how they can apply these principles operationally within their law firm.

This is particularly pertinent given the SRA’s regulatory requirement to ensure compliance with all relevant legislation.

This short webinar aims to guide you through some of the key areas which all personnel need to be aware of to ensure that legislative requirements are understood (and followed) to reduce the risk of data protection breaches and a potential ICO investigation.
