General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)


General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Member Support

GDPR came into effect on 25 May 2018 and is designed to harmonise data protection laws across Europe. As a Chartered Tax Adviser have you considered the implications of GDPR for you, your employer or your firm? 

The Institute has prepared Frequently Asked Questions for Chartered Tax Advisers (CTAs)

The Institute is pleased to offer two complimentary seminars that explore the GDPR issues that will affect tax advisers and highlights key takeaways to help prepare CTAs. You can earn two hours CPD from each seminar.

The following topics will be covered:

• Changes under GDPR
• How data can be processed lawfully
• New and enhanced data subject rights, including the right to data portability
• New data governance obligations for practitioners
• If there is a need to appoint a Data Protection Officer
• New concepts, such as Privacy by Design and Privacy Impact Assessments
• Data Security responsibilities
• Dealing with data security breaches and the new notification requirements

The second seminar is a refresher seminar building on themes explored in the first seminar.
