hear Richard's commercial law, contracts and GDPR update for in house lawyers

24 October 2018

Richard provides a topical update on the latest in contract law and GDPR.

Now that GDPR and (just in time) the Data Protection Act 2018 is in force, Richard takes a look at what we have seen since implementation and how to respond to the rights of individuals. As your contract will largely determine and set out the processes around your use and control of data, Richard also looks specifically at how to make sure businesses are clear on who is a controller or processor, considering article 28 and the wording in their contracts.

Richard talks you through the process which the ICO goes through when determining fines and how you can make sure your business stays compliant. Richard finally considers what you need to include in your agreements, before 31 March 2019, to allow a data transfer data from the EU to the UK - if there is a no deal Brexit.
