Written answers (Question to Housing)

External consultancies have not, to date, been used to advise my Department on issues relating to GDPR. My Department has, however, procured in-house training on GDPR and data protection matters from three companies as detailed below. The services provided involved training staff in a classroom-type setting as well as the development of an e-learning module to be undertaken by all staff in the Department. Individual staff members have, separately, also been supported to attend GDPR-related courses and conferences hosted by external bodies.
