A data subject access request (SAR) is a legal right for individuals to access the information that an organisation holds about them.

Recent data protection legislation has had a significant impact on how organisations manage and respond to data subject access requests (SARs). The abolition of the £10 administration fee, reduced timescale for responding to a SAR, and higher fees for not complying; all pose significant challenges to how organisations manage SARs.

This Complying with Data Subject Access Requests course has been specifically designed to help you to identify and manage SARs. Through a series of interactive workshops, gain hands on experience at understanding the latest legislation on SARs; identifying and managing SARs, and applying the exemptions.

Attend this training course to take back a SARs handling toolkit to ensure that you and your organisation successfully comply and respond to a SAR.
