General Data Protection Regulation - An Introduction for Property Agents

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will come into force across the EU from May 2018. They substantially alter the way in which individual personal data is dealt with and also increase the penalties for failing to deal with data in accordance with the regulations. While a lot of detail remains uncertain and may well do so until the very last minute there is a lot that can, and should, be done now in order to prepare for the regulations coming into force.

This seminar will combine explanations of the regulations with practical advice on business processes and how to implement an effective GDPR-compliant regime.


  • Introducing the GDPR
  • Sources of information and guidance
  • What is clear and what may change
  • Understanding Impact Assessments and how to assess risk
  • Processors and controllers, which are you and what do you have to do
  • Consent, what is needed and how to get it
  • Data protection officers, who they are and where to get one
  • Staff training and internal policies
  • Documents and terms of business
  • Dealing with complaints and changes of consent
  • The penalties for non-compliance
