2024 GDPR Essentials for Law Firms

GDPR Essentials for Law Firms

Designed to assist law firms' employees to understand their core GDPR responsibilities.

Given the nature of work that solicitors take on and the amount of special category information that flows through law firms daily, data protection principles are critical to these firms success.

Our in-house barristers have created an industry specific course on data protection essentials, aimed specifically at law firm employees, helping you to avoid simple data breach errors and meet the legal and regulatory requirements.

Any employee – solicitor or support staff – who is not properly trained in the requirements of the GDPR could land your practice in hot water,  leaving you facing fines, reputational damage, or even criminal charges.

There is no doubt that the continually developing data protection requirements have increased the pressure on legal practices to ensure that the vast amount of sensitive personal data in your hands is properly used, stored and safeguarded.

Our course helps you to avoid investigation from the ICO and other regulatory bodies by ensuring that team members at all levels are properly equipped to understand and meet legally required compliance standards quickly and easily.
