With everyone talking about the GDPR this book is intended to offer a guide through the maze of different requirements and also separate fact from myth. Beginning with a succinct summary of the key changes being introduced by the GDPR, emphasis then shifts to what needs to be done practically by way of response. Written in an accessible style and containing lots of useful resources, it is suitable for lawyers and non-lawyers alike who are seeking to better understand this topic and to comply with their obligations in a common sense and risk focused manner.


Keith Markham qualified as a Solicitor in 2001 and now works as a freelance training consultant.

Initially working in private practice, in 2004 he moved in-house at the BGL Group, a major insurance intermediary that numbers Budget and comparethemarket.com among its brands. During his time there Keith advised extensively on all areas of data protection. He also conducted contract negotiations of a complex nature, often with major blue chip companies.

In 2007, Keith joined BPP Professional Education, one of Europe’s leading providers of professional development training. He worked there as both an in-house lawyer dealing with data protection and commercial contracts and also as a presenter of training courses before ultimately deciding to specialise in delivering training and becoming a freelance training consultant in 2009.

Drawing on his considerable experience Keith has designed and delivered a wide variety of training for BPP and other providers as well as for his own clients in the commercial law field. In particular he teaches topics relating to data protection and commercial contracts to lawyers and non-lawyers alike. He is also currently involved in a number of GDPR compliance projects.
