Our aim is to help clients achieve compliance with data protection laws by providing cost effective, no-nonsense training and support. If you have been avoiding thinking about data protection, now really is the time to start putting personal data audits, policies, procedures, processes and training in place. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforced from 25th May 2018, with potential penalties of €20M or 4% of global turnover. Time is starting to run out – get in touch so that we can help you prepare a prioritised action plan.
We are conveniently located for Edinburgh, Glasgow and the rest of central Scotland, but can easily provide services across the whole of the UK. Our outsourced or virtual data protection officer service can be delivered mainly online.
Computer Law Training Limited is a small company, based in central Scotland, specialising in data protection and information security. It was established in 2010 by Tim Musson. After many years’ experience as a lecturer in diverse areas of computing in the Scottish university sector, and completing a programme of study for Master of Laws degree (LLM) in IT and Telecoms Law, he has been supporting businesses, charities and institutions in areas of information security and data protection (GDPR) as well as providing Data Protection training as CPD for lawyers, accountants and similar professions.
In Computer Law Training we strongly believe that, in both of these areas, apart from the obvious benefits of avoiding problems with the law, it makes good business sense to build customer confidence by, at the very least, complying with the law. Even better, go beyond the legal requirements and conform to best practice. In many cases the main data protection issues are easily resolved. Currently small businesses generally pay little attention to the problems and issues around data protection. The ICO has been paying more attention to the small business sector and, taking a risk management approach, it is quite straightforward to address the majority of data protection problems.
Currently Tim is Convener of the Law Society of Scotland’s Privacy Law Committee, which deals with issues around data protection and other aspects of privacy, responding to consultations on new legislation proposed by the Scottish Parliament, the UK Parliament, the European Parliament and other bodies. He is also a member of the Law Society of Scotland’s Technology Law and Practice Committee.
