"Data protection” is on everyone’s lips.  As PMA members will know, it seemed that the whole world went data protection-crazy as 25 May 2018 approached, the day that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect in the UK and replaced the old rules.  

 So what has actually changed?  How does it affect producing actv programme?  And what do PMs need to do, or do differently? 

Join us on 2 August 2018, when Nigel Abbas and lawyers from leading TV media law firm Abbas Media Law will explain the key rules and changes. 

 This practical session will cover the following:

  •  What is data protection?
  •  Why does it matter?
  •  How does data protection law affect what we do in tv production?
  •  What changes has the GDPR introduced?
  •  What do PMs need to do?
  •  Data protection myths debunked; and
  • Your questions answered.
