Overview

Data protection in Ireland has been governed to date by the Data Protection Act 1988 which was amended in 2003 to include EU directives from 1995. This legislation was the Irish governments interpretation of the EU directive and was implemented in a time before Social Media existed.

In recent years with data breaches occuring on an almost weekly basis across the world the EU has gotten serious about data protection. In April 2016 the EU adopted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and gave the members of the EU until 25th May 2018 to prepare for enforcement. It will become Irish Law on that date.

There are a lot of changes between DPA and GDPR with one most notable being the requirement to have Data Privacy taken into consideration throughout any development of any system or application which processes personal data.

There is also significant fines for non-compliance.

This training will give businesses the guidance they need to prepare for GDPR.
