Data protection in Ireland is now governed by the Data Protection Act 2018, which incorporates the GDPR (EU 2016/679). This has replaced the previous legislation the Data Protection Act 1988, as amended in 2003.
The GDPR has introduced a requirement that all business and organisations that process any personal data should demonstrate that they are being as compliant as possible with the law. This accountability principle requires specific documentation to be produced and maintained.

Who Should Attend

  • Small Business Owners
  • Human Resources

About the Trainer

Liam Lynch has nearly 30 years of experience working in the world of technology. He started out as a developer in the late 80’s but always had an interest in the technology that he used every day, so moved into IT Infrastructure and Security Management.

In 2016, he founded L2 Cyber Security Solutions and developed the most comprehensive Security Awareness Training on the market. This is delivered in an easy to comprehend manner that people of any ability can follow. He lives to the maxim #SecuritySimplified.

Liam has been studying cases of identity theft and data breaches since the late 90’s. With the advent of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), he collaborated with a qualified solicitor (who translated the legalese into English) and crafted training material to make the GDPR easy to understand and prepare for. There is no scaremongering with Liam, in fact some people even have fun at his training sessions.

In November 2017, Liam was appointed to the Permanent Stakeholders Group (PSG) of ENISA (the EU’s Agency for Network and Information Security). The PSG group advises the Executive Director of ENISA on the development of the Agency’s work programme. He participates in working groups on the subjects of security of the internet of things and the future of information security.
