There are several implications of breaching your data protection obligations as a solicitor. These include a £500,000 fine, a criminal record, irreparable damage to professional reputation or the loss of your job or practice.

This session will look at:

  • Understanding what your obligations really are:

    Data Protection legislation is complex. This session will set it in a context that is genuinely relevant to a solicitor, using real life examples to enhance understanding of this complex field.

  • Learning what security measures you need to take:

    Scare stories of data breaches can make protecting yourself and your firm seem like an overwhelming task. This session will discuss the key actions you can take to increase security in your firm, and to protect the firm as much as possible.

  • Knowing what to do if something goes wrong:

    Despite best endeavours sometime things go wrong. When it does, you need to act fast to contain the damage. This session will help you put together a plan for such an emergency.
