Data breach training sessions

13 March 2018

Our specialist data and privacy litigators are offering training for clients on ‘Responding to data breaches: legal obligations, risks and reputation.’

While there has been a growing awareness of good practice around the management of data incidents, this will have a statutory footing from 25 May 2018. We are therefore working with clients to train key personnel about the new obligations and to give some tips on putting this into practice.

The training includes:

  • Recognising a data breach that requires mandatory action
  • What is a reportable breach
  • Who to tell and when
  • Putting together a breach response team and incident plan
  • Business risks – legal and reputational

While many businesses are currently engaged in GDPR readiness projects, this risk-based training moves that preparation on to the final stages of putting data incidents into practice.

The training session will last for 90 minutes (including time for business-specific discussions) and there will be a fee. It is recommended, though not essential, that attendees have some knowledge of data protection basics.

If your organisation might be interested in a bespoke training session at your offices, please contact us at to discuss availability.

We also expect to offer this as a public training session later in the year, which may be an alternative for organisations who have only one or two possible attendees.
