GDPR & Data Protection

MacRoberts offers a variety of data protection training workshops which can be provided on- or off-site.

Our Data Protection workshops are designed to be highly interactive and are completely tailored to suit your needs, whether they be a simple refresh, a requirement for full training or a more in-depth session on a specific requirement, and each workshop will provide scenarios to be examined by attendees. Our workshops are led by our Partners who specialise in the area of data protection and information management, and are regular authors and speakers in this area.


Sample requirements could include: issues relating to ensuring you have lawful consent to process data; issues around the recording, retrieval and destruction of details of individuals in the context of both electronic and manual records; how data protection interacts with social media; how to respond to subject access requests; how long to retain records; and direct marketing issues, to name a few areas covered. We have found that by using real life scenarios, the workshop is more interactive and productive.
