The Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018), the UK’s third generation of data protection law, came into effect on 25 May 2018, the same commencement day as that of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The Act’s commencement raises many questions:
• How does it differ from the DPA 1998?
• How does it compare with the GDPR?
• What about the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR)?
• And (of course) what impact will Brexit have on all of these?
In this informative presentation, André Bywater of Cordery and Scott Giordano of Spirion, two veteran privacy professionals, explain what the changes in the DPA, as well as recent enforcement actions by the Information Commissioner’s Office, mean to your data protection program.
For more information please contact André Bywater or Jonathan Armstrong who are lawyers with Cordery in London where their focus is on compliance issues.
