ABOUT THE AUTHOR

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.

    A POPULAR ANALYSIS OF THIS IRRITATING AREA OF LAW ON DATA PROTECTION WHICH OFFERS INCREASED CONFIDENCE ON COMPLIANCE

    An appreciation by Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers and Phillip Taylor MBE, Head of Chambers, Reviews Editor, “The Barrister”, and Mediator


    The issue of data protection remains legally problematic to many people, both professional practitioners and lay people. Keith Markham has produced a new edition of his popular guide on the latest legal approach to data protection, known as the “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR) in just 400 pages.


    In the two years since the first edition appeared, the author’s principal aim remains “to provide a resource to lawyers and non-lawyers alike so that they can navigate the often-treacherous waters of data protection compliance with increased confidence”. He achieves his GDPR aim with considerable gusto.

    Do begin the book by reading part A which offers an overview of the GDPR, setting out a summary of its main provisions. Each chapter focuses on a different issue as the key content, and is followed by a series of practical steps which we feel will be of benefit to a wide readership


    Markham has summed up the current position on the Regulation with these words: “The GDPR still remains firmly in the public eye with many recent developments in terms of compensation claims, enforcement action and Brexit considerations”.

    The second edition of what has proved to be a popular book “provides both succinct analysis of all the key issues and a series of practical examples to help lawyers and non-lawyers alike comply with their obligations in a common sense and risk-focussed manner”. He has also included a series of worked examples in part B of the book to offer a practical approach when dealing with this topic which is helpful for the uninitiated.

    It is a fully updated and expanded work for 2020, and presents itself as a guide which is written in an accessible style, with a number of new chapters devoted to topics such as data protection impact assessments, compensation “and inevitably Brexit” (chapter 15) although the book appeared before we faced the full horror of Covid-19 in March 2020.

    What we found of great assistance are the series of especially useful practical examples and templates which will help your organisation achieve compliance in what is, for many, a complex and irritating area of regulation. Part C contains the appendices covering an overview of GDPR; an overview of the Data Protection Act 2018; definitions; a useful template for the Data Protection Impact Assessment Form; and a resources section at the very end although there is no index (at the moment, anyway). Thank you, Keith, but do include an index next time!

    The author the law is stated as at 31st January 2020. The publication date of this paperback edition is cited as at 6th March 2020.
