GDPR Certification for Chambers Staff

THE APPROVED SUPPLIER OF GDPR TRAINING FOR THE BAR COUNCIL OF ENGLAND & WALES

The Bar

Due to the unique nature of barrister’s chambers and the volume of personal information they process, the need for GDPR compliance is vital.

The Bar Council has identified GDPR and information security as one of the biggest challenges currently facing the profession. The consequences for chambers of failing at GDPR are enormous.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has stated that if a business achieves a GDPR Certification it will help demonstrate compliance with GDPR to the regulator and mitigate against possible ICO enforcement action, such as fines. This course will provide you all those who achieve the pass mark, with the opportunity to achieve a chambers-specific GDPR Certification, to ensure that you can quickly and easily reach GDPR compliance.
