Data Protection and the GDPR
You may be aware that from the 25th May the GDPR has been enforced with the possibility of huge financial penalties. You may not be aware that on the 24th May the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA) was given Royal Assent.
While the GDPR sets the general rules for data protection the DPA is complementary to it and spells out many of the exemptions and exceptions, in particular for journalism.
NUJ are pleased to be able to offer free training sessions for members in Scotland to help you get to grips with this new data protection regime and its implications for journalism. It will include considerations of data sharing, consent, information security, data subject rights and issues relating to photography
The sessions will take place on the following dates:
28th August (2pm-5pm) Glasgow
30th August (2pm-5pm) Edinburgh
3rd September (2pm-5pm) Perth
