Profiling and Big Data Analytics

Training course carries 5 hours CPD points 

Courses take place in:



Big data is big business. In 2015 the big data analytics market was estimated to be worth $125 billion. However, as the White House put it recently: “Big data analytics may create such an opaque decision-making environment that individual autonomy is lost in an impenetrable set of algorithms.”

The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) addresses this issue - it gives people greater control over their data. If your organisation is engaged in profiling and big data analytics, the changes will make it more challenging for your organisation to act lawfully.

This course analyses the current legal position on profiling and big data, as well as instruction on the GDPR and the implications of Brexit. It includes:

  • an overview of how data protection law currently applies to profiling and big data
  • how the extended territorial scope of the new law will catch far more profiling activities
  • a guide to the more explicit rights individuals will have under the GDPR, with particular emphasis on transparency, control, data minimisation and data portability
  • data controllers’ increased accountability to individuals and the remedies available to individuals
  • the limited circumstances in which profiling will be acceptable
  • the new privacy by design and default regime
  • the GDPR position on profiling and sensitive personal data
  • practical guidance on what information must be supplied to customers and others
  • how to obtain explicit consent, where required
