ACOI 2019 Data Protection Guide


The Data Protection & Information Security Working Group of ACOI has published a revised Data Protection Guide (the ‘Guide’).

Last year the Data Protection Act 1988 and the Data Protection (Amendment) Act 2003 were replaced (for the most part) by new EU Data Protection legislation, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’). The new rules in the GDPR are complemented by a new Irish Data Protection Act (DPA 2018).

This ACOI Guide aims to provide ACOI members with relevant information and practical guidance on the key provisions of the new law in a straightforward, easy to read format. It is based on the GDPR, the DPA 2018 and guidance available at the date of publication and will be updated over time to reflect new developments.

Please note that you must be logged in to the ACOI website as a member to access the Guide, which can be found under Library - Booklets - Data Protection Guide 2019. If already logged in as a member, CLICK HERE.
