Regional and Global Data Protection Law

 

1. European Data Protection Law: The General Data Protection Regulation

This course provides a detailed introduction to the European Union’s GDPR. The GDPR represents a substantial update to the EU’s framework for the protection of personal data. It has implications for organisations outside the EU in view of its extra-territorial application (in certain circumstances) and the potential for very significant penalties for contraventions (up to 4% global annual turnover). This course covers topics such as the European context of data protection, territorial scope of the GDPR, the GDPR’s data protection principles, data subject rights, accountability requirements (such as data protection by design and data protection impact assessments) and requirements for international data transfers (amongst others). This course will also consider implications for organisations in Singapore and the region which may collect personal data of European individuals.
