In the world of Law Enforcement, Data Protection is about compliance with both the UK GDPR and the Law Enforcement Directive (LED) as implemented by Part 3 of the Data Protection Act 2018. This does not just cover the police but any ‘competent authority’ with a ‘law enforcement purpose’ e.g. local authority regulatory services.
While Part 3 is very similar to the GDPR, it is starkly different in a few key areas and can confuse those who do not deal with it regularly. A recent Scottish case shows that even the ICO can get it wrong.
As part of our growing range of practical workshops for data protection professionals,
Act Now Training has launched a full day workshop on this important topic. Our expert trainer, Scott Sammons, will cover the basic requirements under the LED principles, look at practical steps, explore the LED SAR exemptions and see where you can re-use your GDPR controls for an LED purpose.
This workshop can also be customised and delivered to your organisation at your premises or virtually. Get in touch to learn more.
