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
