What will you learn?

The General Data Protection Regulation, a ground breaking piece of data protection legislation, came into force on 25 May 2018. It will have a significant impact on every HR practitioner as it enhances data protection rights of employees, imposes onerous obligations on employers and introduces severe financial penalties for non-compliance.
