Data Subject Access Requests (SARs) are a key and important right granted to individuals under the UK Data Protection law. However, the handling of such requests can be a challenge as Personal Data can be found almost anywhere in an organisation and in various formats. Knowing what can be released under SAR, and what is not, can be a challenge for any organisation.
Attend our Understanding and Applying SARs Exemptions course to gain practical knowledge of handling a SAR and applying the exemptions. Learn how to manage vexatious requests for personal data, practice writing a refusal notice, the best methods for redacting data and how to practically utilise the exemptions available to you.
As well as practical tips and knowledge, leave the day with an exemptions toolkit including templates to use in your organisation.
