This course will provide an up to date digest of Data Protection legislation from the Local Authority perspective and in particular revenues and benefits work.
The objective of the course is to ensure that delegates are aware of their obligations and duties under data protection law so that they can act within the law and provide accurate advice to the public.
The course will take the local authority perspective and cover :
- Current data protection legislation, (GDPR, LED, DPA 2018, PECR). Will
- include the Digital Economy Act 2017.

- The data protection principles with a focus on the lawful basis of processing for Local Authorities.
- Data Controller Obligations.
- Data Subject rights and where those rights may be restricted.
- Sharing personal information – an introduction.
- Consent to sharing personal information.
