Speaker - Keith Markham


This course has been completely updated to take into account recent developments in respect of both the UK GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 with particular emphasis on how Brexit affects this area of practice. Delivered by a highly experienced presenter, and using a variety of case studies, delegates will leave the session better informed and equipped to deal with this ever-evolving area of practice. The implications of Covid-19 will be discussed where appropriate.

This session will also summarise the key changes to the existing regime being proposed by the Government in its current consultation, ‘Unleashing data’s power’, which closes on 19th November.

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


After beginning his career in private practice, in 2004 he moved in-house at the BGL Group, a major insurance intermediary that includes 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 going freelance 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, consumer law and commercial contracts to lawyers and non-lawyers alike. He also provides consultancy services to an increasing number of clients in those fields and is the author of ‘A Practical Guide to the GDPR’ and ‘Covid-19, force majeure and frustration of contracts – the essential guide’.
